    Classic film fans will mourn the loss of this beauty...

    "Virginia Mayo, the beautiful blond who rose to movie stardom in the 1940s in comedies opposite Bob Hope and Danny Kaye and had memorable dramatic turns with James Cagney in "White Heat" and Dana Andrews in "The Best Years of Our Lives," died today. She was 84.

    Mayo died of pneumonia and heart failure after a long illness in a nursing home near her home in Thousand Oaks, said family friend Alex Ben Block."

    I will always remember her as the dashing damsel-in-distress, Rosalind and her many dream incarnations, in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty which I watched more than a few times as a child... Come to think of it, that movie was probably my first exposure to Boris Karloff, who really creeped me out at the time.
