Last week we began showing photos from the collection of Sgt Norman Plemons, who during the Korean War wrote to some of the popular stars at the time and requested photos he could hang in his locker, or on his barrack’s walls.
Nancy Wiman, the late Marine’s sister, is sharing these photos with us and our readers. Nancy says: I think they need to be shared for two reasons. #1 to remind oldsters like me what wonderful ladies brightened our movie lives when growing up. and #2: to introduce young people to these beautiful, tasteful, talented stars of yesteryear, who didn’t have to take off clothes or act outrageously to get attention.
Today we highlight Rita Moreno, who like many others, signed her photo with a personal note to Norm.
