Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ilona Massey (June 16, 1910 - August 20, 1974) was a film, stage and radio performer. She was born in Budapest, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now Hungary). Billed as "the new Dietrich," she starred in three films with Nelson Eddy, including Rosalie (1937), and with Lon Chaney, Jr. in Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943) as Baroness Frankenstein. In 1943, she appeared in the Ziegfeld Follies. In 1947, she starred with Eddy in Northwest Outpost, a musical film composed by Rudolf Friml. In 1949, she starred in Love Happy with the Marx Brothers. She played Madame Egelichi, a femme fatale spy, and her performance inspired Milton Caniff in the creation of his femme fatale spy, Madame Lynx, in the comic strip "Steve Canyon." Caniff hired Massey to pose for him.show more
