Actress Terry Moore Hughes was featured on the July 1956 cover of Life Magazine as “Hollywood’s Sexiest Tomboy.” Almost thirty years later she did a complete photo spread in the August 1984 Playboy magazine, at the age of fifty-five, and I am told that the new grandmother had the body of a twenty-year-old woman.
In October 1949, aboard a yacht at sea, the captain married twenty-year-old Terry Moore to billionaire Howard Hughes, who later ripped up the ship’s log noting the marriage. Howard Hughes taught her to keep as much of her life off-record as she could.
There was never a divorce between Howard Hughes and Terry Moore, and they were very close even during her marriages to Heisman Trophy winner Glenn Davis, and later Eugene McGrath. When Howard Hughes died in 1976, she went to court to claim part of his wealth as his legal wife. The family made a private out-of-court settlement with her, possibly to purchase her silence about the things she knew about the secretive billionaire.
Her most recent movie appearance is in the movie ‘Silent Life,’ set to be released on 6 May 2019, and she claimed that it would be her final film appearance, at the age of ninety.
In this situation comedy she is the young daughter of acrobat parents who are unable to find work. We join them on Christmas Eve, and they have no place to sleep other than on a park bench. When they meet another out-of-work performer, they learn that there might be an apartment that they could live in for a while until the owner discovers that they have no money.
With a little fast-talking they are allowed to move into the basement apartment, and will be able to spend Christmas inside, instead of outside in the snow. OK, forget about being out of the snow, thanks to a hole in the skylight the winter snow is falling inside their tiny apartment. Not only that, but a furry squirrel has taken lodge in the ceiling near the hole in the skylight. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
