Veronica Lake

Veronica Lake

Highest Rated: 100% Sullivan's Travels (1941)

Lowest Rated: 78% The Glass Key (1942)

Birthday: Nov 14, 1919

Birthplace: Brooklyn, New York, USA

An icy blonde whose trademark hairstyle - a cascade of golden tresses that obscured one heavy-lidded eye - remained among the enduring images of Hollywood glamour, Veronica Lake was for a time, one of the most popular and sought-after actresses in motion pictures. She starred in a handful of features that, though the years, earned legendary status, including the film noirs, "This Gun for Hire" (1942) and "The Blue Dahlia" (1946), as well as the smart comedies, "Sullivan's Travels" (1941) and "I Married a Witch" (1942). She also motivated a generation of women to imitate her cool sexuality and chic style, at the same time, causing an equal number of men - particularly fighting WWII G.I.s - to fall for her. Lake stood the test of time as a Tinseltown icon, inspiring tribute in songs, literature, and movies.

QUOTES FROM Veronica Lake CHARACTERS

The Girl says: Where is this train going?

John L. Sullivan says: I don't know.

The Girl says: Well how long does it take to get there?

The Girl says: Where is this train going?

John L. Sullivan says: I don't know.

The Girl says: Well how long does it take to get there?

The Girl says: You've taken all the joy out of life. I was all through with this kind of stuff. I mean, I knew I'd never have it - but there was no envy in my heart. I'd found a friend who'd swipe a car to take me home..., now I'm right back where I started: just an extra-girl having breakfast with a director. Only I didn't used to have breakfast with them. Maybe that was my trouble.

John L. Sullivan says: Did they ever ask you to?

The Girl says: No

John L. Sullivan says: Well then don't pat yourself on the back.

The Girl says: Take me with you.

John L. Sullivan says: What?

The Girl says: I'm sorry I pushed you in the water, too.

The Girl says: I'm sorry I pushed you in the water too.

John L. Sullivan says: I probably needed it.

The Girl says: You certainly did.

John L. Sullivan says: Did I?

The Girl says: I didn't mind you. In fact, I had kind of a yin for you.

John L. Sullivan says: You have?

The Girl says: Not in that thing. I liked you better as a tramp.

John L. Sullivan says: Well I can't help the kind of people you like.

The Girl says: Where's the swimming pool, you must have a swimming pool.
