1948: Carole Landis, actress

In a 1941 article for Photoplay, the glamorous <a hred="http://projects.latimes.com/hollywood/star-walk/carole-landis/">Carole Landis</a> wrote: "Glamour girls are suckers!"
<br />
<br />
"So you might rightly hail me, 'Hi Sucker!' because, as the nicks on a gun indicate how many men a killer has got, nicks on the heart of a glamour girl indicate how many men she didn't get!
"There is very little I can do about it, either. Being a glamour girl doesn't help any. I can only do what other girls do, cry my eyes out at night, hope and pray, pretend I don't care, do the best acting job of my career for the benefit of friends and family, for the sake of my own pride."

These <i>nicks</i> may have been the death of Landis, who committed suicide at the age of 29 and in the middle of her fourth divorce.

In the suicide note she left for her mother, Landis said: "I'm really, really sorry to put you through this but there is no way to avoid it."
