Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lila Leeds (January 28, 1928 - September 15, 1999) was an American film actress. Born Lila Lee Wilkinson in Iola, Kansas, Leeds ran away from home as a teen. She worked as a dancer in St. Louis before moving to Los Angeles. While working as a hatcheck girl at Ciro's, she met and married actor, composer, singer and conductor Jack Little. The marriage was annulled when Leeds discovered that Little was still married. After taking an acting course at the Bliss-Hayden School of Acting, Leeds signed with MGM and began appearing in film roles. On September 1, 1948, Leeds gained notoriety for being arrested together with actor Robert Mitchum on charges of marijuana possession. She subsequently spent sixty days in jail. Although she starred in She Shoulda Said No! (1949) following her release from prison, her acting career never really recovered from the episode.
