A rare glamour shot of Barbara Bel Geddes. The actress, who died this week from lung cancer at the age of 82, lost her contract with RKO in the late 1940s, when new studio head Howard Hughes decided she wasn't sexy enough. Though she earned an Oscar nomination in 1948 for her work in the film Remember Mama, she was best known, before her stint on Dallas, as the frumpy friend in Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo.
