Happy Birthday Veronica Lake
Standing at just 4'11 inches tall and apparently weighing only 90lbs, Veronica Lake must have been the tiniest femme fatale of the 1940's! I think what she was most famous for though was her hairstyle, which was widely imitated. Veronica was born in Brooklyn, New York but later moved with her family to Beverly Hills, which was when she got her start in show business. Fun fact - Veronica got her pilots licence in 1946, and was able to fly by herself between Los Angeles and New York.
