|Femmes Fatales||Aug 1 2012|
Seems apropos on this first day of August to feature Adelle August. A fairly obscure actress, she was born Adele M. Slaybough in the state of Washington, where she won the 1952 Miss Washington title before making her way to Hollywood. There, she appeared in seven movies in 1955 and 1956 but quickly faded from the show business scene, her last appearance being as an envelope and statuette handler at the 1958 Emmy Awards. To this day, though, she’s remembered—correctly, in our humble opinions—as having some of the best legs ever.
