1000 Words: Hollywood Goes Fishing (Connie Britton)

Pamela Britton (1923-1974) is an actress mostly forgotten today. Best known for her role in the classic film noir D.O.A. (1950), she later played Lorelei on the camp TV show My Favorite Martian. A Milwaukee native, she was a gifted stage actress who died early (and quite suddenly) at the age of 51 from a brain tumor. Here she is ca. 1961 with a nice spinning rig.
