Lila Leeds, who looks like Lana Turner’s twin sister, which means
she has blonde hair, blue eyes and a couple other very appealing
features, has just completed her first six months as an actress.
She fervently hopes Lila Leeds is here to stay.
“I think Hollywood is perfectly wonderful,” Lila said.
She comes from Clovis, N. M. She went to New York and became
a model. Then she became interested in dramatics and appeared
in one play.
Billy Grady, M-G-M’s talent scout, took one look and signed her.
Lila is 18, is five feet, three and weighs 112 pounds.
She’s had two small parts. She played the very sexy secretary
in “The Show Off.” Then she played a very, very sexy
secretary in “Lady In The Lake.”
Lila hopes she won’t play any more sexy roles.
“I want to play meanies,” she told your reporter.
“There’s really something to that kind of part.”
