Mamie Van Doren
Born today (Feb. 6) in 1931, actress Mamie Van Doren.
In her prime, Mamie Van Doren was often mistaken for Marilyn Monroe, both being blonde beauties. Unlike Monroe, though, Van Doren's films are not remembered as classics, and many are hardly remembered at all. Her career trajectory went from supporting roles in borderline-A level films to leading roles in B's to exploitation films, drive-in quickies, and straightforward trash. source/more
