Henrietta Leaver

http://the-american-history.blogspot.com/Henrietta Leaver, Miss Pittsburgh, was crowning Miss America on September 7, 1935 at Atlantic City, New Jersey. She was 19 years old only. She had lost that job many months prior to entering her local contest and had no expectations of becoming a movie star or finding a rich husband due to her planned appearance at the Atlantic City pageant. She simply wanted a steady job. Shortly after being crowned it was announce that Leaver had been offered two screen tests. When the West Coast Leaver won another crown, “Miss Model America of 1936,” a contest for models on behalf of department stores around the country. Along with another trophy, she received a screen indenture and was cast to appear in the musical motion picture “Star Struck.” She had only one other movie audition and did not again appear on the big screen.
