One of the best and brightest gal pals to liven up many a classic Hollywood movie with her wry asides and wisecracks was actress Eve Arden. Her presence made a good picture even better and a mediocre movie worth watching. If she couldn't save a picture, it wasn't worth saving. Like Oscar Levant and Thelma Ritter, Eve played supporting characters with charisma. We loved her. In movies like Cover Girl, Mildred Pierce, One Touch of Venus and My Dream Is Yours, she was the competent smart gal who was just "one of the guys" and didn't have a man of her own...even though she was a babe.
