the gorgeous and talented carroll baker was Miss Florida Fruits & Vegetables of 1949! take that sunny state.
i adore her. she was very close to being cast opposite james dean in 'rebel without a cause.'
her role as the 'not ready for marriage' wife in 'baby doll' is the stuff of cinema legend. she was serious and beautiful and made both big films and odd small ones. her delivery of tennessee williams's lines in 'baby doll' are unforgettable. my fave:
"well, i can say hello!"
