Myrna Fahey--the most tragic moll?

Myrna Fahey, who played False Face's moll Blaze, died of cancer just two months after her 40th birthday in 1973. Early on in her career, her looks were compared to those of Elizabeth Taylor.

Not sure if she ever got married, but I know her budding romance with baseball legend Joe DiMaggio ended in 1964, in part because she got numerous death threats during their relationship. Those threats came from a mental patient who supposedly couldn't bear to see DiMaggio with anyone other than Marilyn Monroe.

Oh, the poor thing!  That's terrible!

40 is still just a kid!  Well, at least today it's still just a kid.

Yeah, 40's the new 20.  Smiley That's sad I always liked her. I believe I've heard another Batman actress died young but i can't think of which.

Victoria Vetri may be the most tragic living moll, as she is in prison for attempted voluntary manslaughter.  As per Ms. Fahey, I don't think she ever married.

Other deceased molls include:
  1. Barbara Nichols (1927-1976)
  2. Barbara Stuart (1930-2011)
  3. Ethel Merman (1908-1984)
  4. Patti Gilbert (1931-2011)
  5. Nobu McCarthy (1934-2002)
  6. Jennifer Gan (died 2000)
  7. Corinne Calvet (1925–2001)


Dick Kallman (Little Louie Groovy) was murderd in 1980 in New York, in his apartment.  So far, I am not seeing anything about another actress dying young, but maybe someone else can help here.

Wow, maybe I'm wrong. Looking into it for about the last seven minutes, 99.9% of the Batman molls are all still alive! Most of the low level molls were up & coming starlets who married middle-aged studio executives and late in life became collagen injected show ponies! Sorry.

I can't  think of her name now, but I remember awhile back that there was  a moll for Tut who was arested for murder and convicted about a year ago. She played I think Florence of Arabia. And wasn't she in real life in Playboy or something?

There were a lot of posts and threads on this. Anybody remember?  Undecided

That's who he's talking about. Vetri's stage name at the time was Angela Dorian, and that's how she was credited in Batman when she played Tut's moll. It was attempted murder of her husband.

Sad.

I didn't know that it was the same. That's why I didn't get it.  Undecided

Must be High C your investigative skills as a hard-hitting reporter that allowed you to find this.  Cool

Thanks for the 411.

In trying to find info on certain molls via Google News, it's amusing to see how inter-connected a number of them were (especially for the first season): Jill St. John divorced a guy that then briefly dated Sherry Jackson, who was a close of Diane McBain. In the early 60's, St. John also had organized an all-girl, all-actress sports club with Myrna Fahey.
