Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Barbara Jo Lawrence (born February 24, 1928) is an American film actress. Lawrence was born in Carnegie, Oklahoma. She began her career as a photographer's model at a very young age, and appeared in her first film, Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe, in 1945. She was featured in the 1947 swashbuckler, "Captain from Castile" with Tyrone Power. While finishing her studies at UCLA, she attracted the attention of talent scouts, and Lawrence was soon co-starring in a handful of 20th Century Fox movies, including A Letter to Three Wives, The Street with No Name, Thieves' Highway and Here Come the Nelsons. In January 1947, aged 18, she married John Fontaine, an actor known professionally as Jeffrey Stone. The marriage was kept secret until June 28, 1947, when her mother gave Barbara a church wedding in Beverly Hills, but the marriage ended a year and a half later, in 1948.show more
