Veronica Lake (November 14, 1922 – July 7, 1973) was an American film, stage, and television actress. Lake won both popular and critical acclaim, most notably for her role in Sullivan's Travels and for her femme fatale roles in film noirs with Alan Ladd, during the 1940s. She was also well known for her peek-a-boo hairstyle. By the late 1940s however, Lake's career had begun to decline in part due to her struggles with mental illness and alcoholism. She made only one film in the 1950s but appeared in several guest-starring roles on television. She returned to the screen in 1966 with a role in the film Footsteps In the Snow, but the role failed to revitalize her career.

Veronica was a little mysterious according to Hollywood gossip.

Her third husband was not Joe McCarthy the politician but Joseph A McCarthy the lyricist.

Wow Marlon Brando you looked very hot when you were younger!

How is it that Veronica Lake could have married Brian Johnson in 2000, if she died on July 7, 1973?
