♥HAPPY BIRTHDAY!♥

Constance Frances Marie Ockelman a.k.a VERONICA LAKE

November 14 1922 - July 7 1973 

"Possibly no candidate for the pantheon of cinema love goddesses was admitted on such a gimmicky whim as Veronica Lake, whose sulky but beauteous face was characteristically half-obscured by tossed locks of her blonde hair….Her initial cinema popularity was extended by a fortuitous teaming with stone-faced Alan Ladd, he of the sloppy fedora and trenchcoat. They created a new brand of screen lovers: calculating, conscienceless, self-possessed individuals. Their love scenes together were the epitome of restrained ego-feeding, filled with non-sequitur conversation, wisps of cigarette smoke, and bristling icy stares.

The essence of hauteur, she proved the perfect screen bitch: a lithe, provocative figure, topped by luscious blonde hair partially revealing a lean face with slightly sunken cheeks, big cold eyes … and the surprise of her husky, mature voice.” —James Robert Parish (“The Paramount Pretties”, 1972)
