NEIGH, JANE

Lovely young starlett, featured in a 1949 LIFE magazine article about rising young Hollywood stars.

She shared that platform with Suzanne Dalbert, Lorette Luez, Ricki Soma (Angelica Huston's mom), and a cute blonde named Marilyn Monroe.

I guess the starmobile had room for only one on that trip, and it wasn't Jane Neigh, but she did do some minior films and TV work in the fifties

Day, Doris

First known as a band singer. One of her biggest hits was "Sentimental Journey". Went on to star as the eternal virgin, girl-next-door type in several well-known (and several not so well-known) movies. Those she made with Rock Hudson were a very big hit. Now lives in semi-retirement and rarely appears publically. Her main interest now is her assortment of animals.
