|“||"When I attended the University, I daydreamed about being a movie star. I would do my dressing room in Early American and give lovely presents to my make-up man and hairdresser for making me look so lovely, and so on. When I got my contract at 20th I was in seventh heaven, but I found out that a movie career is mostly hard work laced with disappointments"||”|

Coleen Gray (1922-2015) was an American actress who was active primarily in the 1950s and 1960s. In spite of prominent roles in films like Red River and Nightmare Alley, her career never really took off and was largely consigned to B movies and television guest spots. After retiring from acting, she devoted herself to working with various charitable organizations, including The March of Dimes and American Red Cross.
