Happy Birthday Dorothy Lamour
Dorothy Lamour was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1914. In 1931, she entered a beauty pageant and was crowned "Miss New Orleans". She then pursued a career as a singer which eventually led her to Hollywood in 1936. Dorothy soon signed a contract with Paramount Pictures and proved to be a talented actress. She was also one of the most popular pin-up girls during WWII, and helped raise millions of dollars in war bonds. Did you know that Dorothy once worked as an elevator operator? Hard to imagine when looking at these glamorous photos!
