Sheree North was one of the last in a long line of Fox blondes stretching from Sonja Henie, Alice Faye, Betty Grable, June Haver to Jayne Mansfield and Marilyn Monroe. In fact, North was originally hired by 20th Century-Fox with the intention of making her the next Monroe, whose height and measurements she almost matched exactly. “Even today,” she told an interviewer in 1983, “there’s still the same reaction when producers hear my name. They remember me as the blonde who was to have taken over from Marilyn Monroe.” The Guardian.
