Who was Jean Spangler?
Millions of girls each year travel to Hollywood in hopes of becoming famous. This was especially so in the late nineteen forties and fifties, as the lure of fame and money drew women from all over the nation to the home of the movie industry.
Many tried, but few were chosen to become big-time movie stars. Starlets were the girls who played extras and bit parts in films where the focus was on the actual movie star. These girls considered themselves lucky if their face actually appeared on the screen, and they were ecstatic if they had a one line speaking part. Each time, they were sure this was their “big break.”
Jean Spangler was one of those hopefuls.
