Thelma Ritter


A pregnant Hollywood star caught German measles from a fan and gave birth to a brain-damaged child. That tragic event was made the backstory in a well-known novel and movie. Who was the star and what is the movie?

Gene Tierney is the actress....the story was the basis for "The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side" by Agatha Christie. I believe the movie was just called "The Mirror Crack'd"

Hmm, Kay, it's probably only a matter of wording, but the State Department doesn't have its own Chief of Protocol. The Office of Protocol is a division of the State Department and is headed by the US Chief of Protocol. If that's who you mean, the answer is Shirley Temple Black.

What professional wrestler turned actor and then politician and ended up a state governor?
