Marie McDonald: blonde bombshell of the 1940s and 1950s, nicknamed The Body because of her big big bust. Had difficulty finding work for most of her career, presumably because she couldn’t act. Arrested for DUI and hit and run driving, made up wild publicity stunts, “accidentally” overdosed on sleeping pills once before, during the late 1950s. Overdosed again on Seconal at her dressing table, this time fatally, although her death is ruled accidental. Her husband Donald F. Taylor killed himself with Seconal a few months after McDonald’s death, in the same bedroom where she died. McDonald was 42 years old at the time of her death.
