Claire Trevor (March 8, 1910 – April 8, 2000) was an actress, nicknamed the "Queen of Film Noir" because of her many appearances in ”bad girl” roles in film noir and other black-and-white thrillers. She appeared in over 60 films. Trevor’s acting career spanned more than seven decades and included successes in stage, radio, television and film. She costarred with John Wayne, gaining her final Oscar nomination for The High and the Mighty in 1954 (picture from the film above).

Pennsylvania) is primarily remembered for her 1963 million-selling song

discovered at age thirteen singing at her cousin’s wedding and was
introduced to the record producer partnership Hugo & Luigi at RCA
records.They gave her the nickname “Little” Peggy March because she
was only 4 Ft 9 In tall. She was only thirteen when the first record with  
RCA  was made called “Little Me”. In March of 2010, Peggy went into the  
recording studio and made her first album of new, original material in over  
30 years. The album cover is shown above.
