Linda Darnell (Oct. 1923 - April 1965) (photo found on flickr before edit)
Made her 1st film Hotel For Women in 1939 at age 15 posing as 17 and listed by 20th Century Fox as 19.
Unable to have children adopted a little girl with her first husband.
Tragically died at age 41 from burns sustained in a house fire covering 90% of her body.  Sadly, Linda could have survived.  She went downstairs to retrieve a large sum of cash and didn’t jump from a 2nd story window as the other occupants had.

The “Gibson Girl,” a style popularized near the end of the Victorian era around the 1890s, consisted of a natural, simple bun without much detail. Young women swept their hair into a loose bun at the back of their head. The bun mimicked the more elaborate pompadour style of the 1880s since it swept hair away from the forehead, but it lacked the height of the pompadour. Recreate the “Gibson Girl” style by loosely pulling your hair back into a simple bun and arranging the few loose strands of hair near the face and at the base of the neck into delicate curls.Read more: Simple Victorian Hairstyles | eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/info_8144594_simple-victorian-hairstyles.html#ixzz1J4rORUyB
