Gloria Grahame never thought she was as beautiful as everyone else thought of her, which was a shame. She was also more talented than studio people thought she was — her only Academy Award came from a nine-minute screen appearance in The Bad and the Beautiful (1952). However, when she married the son of her second husband (i.e. stepson), the resulting uproar pretty much ended her career, which was a shame.
She died at age 57, of cancer.
