Billie Dove (1903-1997) Educated in private schools in Manhattan,she was already singled out as quite a beauty in early teens.By 15 and 16 she was helping to support the family by working as both a photographer and artist's model.This stunning beauty was subsequently hired by impresario Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. to appear in his famous Follies.A burgeoning affair between Dove and Ziegfeld prompted Ziegfeld's wife Billie Burke to arrange work out West for the young starlet in Hollywood films.The popularity came immediately.She retired after only a few years into the talking picture era.The advent of sound was the beginning of the end.The great multi-millionaire eccentric and (at that time) budding producer Howard Hughes became an obsessed admirer,which resulted in an all-consuming three-year affair.Most of her films were destroyed in a studio fire.
