At the outbreak of World War II, Yugoslav actress Lenore Aubert headed to the U.S. Discovered by a talent scout while starring in a Los Angeles community theatre production, Lenore was signed to a contract with Sam Goldwyn, but appeared under the Goldwyn banner in only one film, They Got Me Covered (1943). Free-lancing throughout the 1940s, Lenore played many a mysterious foreigner or femme fatale: she was at her slinky best in the 1948 horror comedy Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948). She left Hollywood in 1949, appearing in a brace of 1950s European films before retiring permanently. In the 1960s, Lenore was active with the United Nations Activity and Housing Section.
