31 mins - Published Sun, Sep 9, 2018 by Jeff Kelley

She was barely an adult, had a unique hairstyle, waz a heavy drinker, diagnosed with a mental illness and – for a few years in the early 1940s – was a huge star in Hollywood. Within less than 10 years, even while starring in a few huge films, she disappeared from Hollywood. Years later, she would be discovered working as a waitress in a hotel in New York City.

Today, I tell the story of the actress Veronica Lake on the 159 episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.
