Such pulchritude, let us peruse
It's worthy of multiple views
Those lips, pretty-pleasing
Our trigger she's squeezing
Here's looking at Mary Beth Hughes
Top and above: From Noir of the Week, Mary Beth Hughes fondles Erich Von Stroheim's gun and he takes a shot at her in The Great Flamarion (Anthony Mann, 1945); Below: Early 50s publicity photo courtesy of Brian's Drive-in Theater. Mary Elizabeth Hughes was born in Alton, Illinois. She starred in such low-budgeters as Free, Blonde and 21, Men on Her Mind, I Accuse My Parents, The Lady Confesses and Inner Sanctum, and appeared further down the credits in the upscale The Ox-Bow Incident and Young Man With a Horn. This one's for pal and Mary Beth fan, Andrew Pepoy.
