B-Girl Birthdays

BETTA ST. JOHN
November 26, 1929


ADELE JERGENS
November 26, 1917 - November 22, 2002

The Law vs. Billy the Kid. The Crime Dotor's Diary. Tarzan and the Lost Safari. Fireman, Save My Child. Corridors of Blood. Girls in Prison. City of the Dead. Runaway Daughters. The combined filmographies of Betta St. John and Adele Jergens indicate that, befitting their birthday, they knew their way around a turkey. Incidentally, they both also had bit parts in the considerably more prestigious Jane Eyre (1944) - Betta as an "Orphan Girl," and Adele as a "Girl at the Party." Strangely, though, we're more inclined to sit through Adele as one of her many gun molls in Armored Car Robbery (1950), or Betta as an exotic prncess crashing the suburbs in Dream Wife (1953).




Happy Birthday, gals! Your special brand of manufactured glamour is sorely missed today.
