women are beautiful

Marie McDonald leaving hospital and making headlines in 1957 after claiming she was kidnapped by two men.


Married for the first time in 1940 but this marriage quickly ended. Her second marriage, to her agent Vic Orsatti, lasted four years. She was also one of Bugsy Siegel's mistresses at the time. In all, she married seven times, including twice to millionaire Harry Karl, who later married Debbie Reynolds. There were also romances with Eddie Fisher and Michael Wilding. McDonald's tumultuous personal life soon overshadowed her career. Tabloids regularly reported on her rocky romances, car accidents, and an escape from an Australian psychiatric clinic. In 1965, McDonald was found dead of a drug overdose in her Calabasas, California home.
