Lila Lee was born Augusta Appel in 1901, and was called 'Cuddles' as a child. Her sparkling and seductive personality brought her to quick fame in the new entertainment invention called motion pictures. When Jessy Laskey from Paramount Pictures spotted her he immediately brought her to Hollywood in the hopes of grooming her as a replacement for the temperamental star Gloria Swanson. in 1923 Lila married screen heart-throb James Kirkwood, and just like in the movie 'A Star is Born' her career rose like a meteor just as his career was fizzling out, and they were divorced in 1929. Unfortunately Lila didn't become the super star that Laskey had wanted, but she acted in a total of 99 motion pictures before her death in 1973 at the age of seventy two. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter on it and discover young and sexy Lila Lee at the height of her motion picture career.
