Screen and television actress Veronica Lake (1919-1973), born Constance Frances Marie Ockelman, was known as "the Peek-a-Boo Girl" for her signature hairstyle, which was swept over the right side of her forehead, sometimes partially covering her right eye. A former beauty queen, Lake made her film debut in 1939, first billed as Constance Keane (she had adopted the last name of her stepfather). She first received notice from the public with her role in the 1941 film, I Wanted Wings, and it was at that time that the actress became Veronica Lake. She had top billing in the 1942 film, This Gun for Hire, and Lake went on to star in several box office smashes, including So Proudly We Hail! (1943). Her other film credits include Star Spangled Rhythm (1942), Duffy's Tavern (1945), Hold That Blonde (1945), The Blue Dahlia (1946), Variety Girl (1947), Slattery's Hurricane (1949), Stronghold (1951), Footsteps in the Snow (1966) and Flesh Feast (1970, her last film). Lake was also seen on the small screen from 1950 (Your Show of Shows) through 1954 (Broadway Television Theatre). The diminutive actress was also an accomplished aviatrix. Lightly creased. Two file holes at upper portion. Ink note (unknown hand) at lower left). Fine condition.
