Linda Darnell 100 -- October 16, 2023

Beautiful and troubled actress Linda Darnell was born 100 years ago today, on 16-October-1923. She spent most of her career under contract with 20th Century-Fox, but Fox had trouble finding suitable roles for her.

She appeared in several movies with Tyrone Power Jr, including The Mark of Zorro and Blood and Sand

Forever Amber should have been Darnell's big break, but the critics didn't like it. The book was considered smutty by some and the Legion of Decency condemned it. She fought with director Otto Preminger.
