Dorothy Lamour was born in Louisiana in 1914. She was Miss New Orleans at 16, and she became the vocalist in the Herbie Kaye band, and married the bandleader. She was spotted by Paramount Pictures, and after a few uncredited appearances, she starred in The Jungle Princess, where she wore a floral print wrap-around sarong, and she was a sensation. She made five more "sarong pictures" and she also starred in the "Road" movies opposite Bob Hope and Bing Crosby (sadly in the last of these she was dubbed too old, and she was cast aside for a younger sexy Joan Collins). She also made made other movies, but she will always be remembered as the sexy sarong girl! She passed away in 1996 at the age of 81.
