carolelandis.jpgHappy Birthday actor Carole Landis (1919–1948)

Born: January 1, 1919 in Fairchild, Wisconsin, USA

Died: July 5, 1948 (age 29) in Pacific Palisades, California, USA

Her final two films, Brass Monkey (1948) and Noose (1948) were released in 1948. On July 5, 1948, Carole committed suicide by taking an overdose of Seconal in her Brentwood Heights, California, home. She was only 29 and had made 49 pictures, most of which were, unfortunately, forgettable. If Hollywood moguls had given Carole a chance, she could have been one of the brightest stars in its history.
