Marion Martin aka. "Hollywood’s Blonde Menace"..
Began her career as a chorus girl dancing in 'Earl Carroll's Vanities' burlesque show.. Soon after, caught the attention of Flo Ziegfeld Jr.,— who signed her to replace Gypsy Rose Lee in his 'Follies of 1933' show.. By 1938, she had signed a contract with Universal to begin an acting career.. Sadly, she was quickly typecast as an actress that perpetually played down-on-their-luck showgirls and strippers..

Hattie McDaniel, winner of the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, 1940 for her performance in Gone With the Wind, and Fay Bainter, who presented the award to her at the ceremony.
"Hattie McDaniel earned that gold Oscar, by her fine performance as Mammy in Gone With the Wind. If you had seen her face when she walked up to the platform and took the gold trophy, you would have had the choke in the voice that all of us had when Hattie, hair trimmed with gardenias, face alight and dressed up to the queen’s taste, accepted the honor in one of the finest speeches ever given on the Academy floor. … Fay Bainter, with voice trembling, introduced Hattie and spoke of the happiness she felt in bestowing upon the beaming actress Hollywood’s highest honor." - Louella Parsons on her CBS radio show
