Virginia Mayo (born Virginia Clara Jones) was an actress from the 1940s to the 1990s. At 17, she was a member of the St. Louis Municipal Opera, and she was signed to a contract by Samuel Goldwyn, but she was far from an overnight success! David O. Selznick gave her a screen test, but did not think she had a future in films, and it was not until years later in the early 1940s that she finally got some good roles. But once she had success, she hung onto it for a long time, continuing to have good parts through the 1950s! Some of her mostly Warner Bros. movies include: The Best Years of Our Lives, White Heat, Wonder Man, Backfire, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and A Song Is Born. She passed away in 2005 at the age of 84.
