Marion Martin      aka. "Hollywood’s Blonde Menace"..
Began her career as a chorus girl dancing in 'Earl Carroll's Vanities' burlesque show.. Soon after, caught the attention of Flo Ziegfeld Jr.,— who signed her to replace Gypsy Rose Lee in his 'Follies of 1933' show.. By 1938, she had signed a contract with Universal to begin an acting career.. Sadly, she was quickly typecast as an actress that perpetually played down-on-their-luck showgirls and strippers..
