Anne Francis' First Day in Hollywood

Lovely Anne Francis was all of 16 years old when she left New York for Hollywood. She was signed by MGM in 1947. Anne (born Ann Marvak on September 16, 1930 - January 2, 2011) had been "in the business" since age 6 in New York modeling, on stage, and on radio.




Day 1 was spent settling into their hotel with her mother, Edith Albertson Francis.

Anne had a celebration breakfast at the famous Brown Derby Restaurant



Up next - Day 2. A power lunch and meeting a blond male Hollywood heartthrob actor. Can anyone guess who it was?

I adore her too. She was fabulous as Honey West and she is in one of my all-time favorite Twilight Zone episodes, "The After Hours".
