Dr. Franklin Ruehl, Ph.D.: Did a Lethal Curse Plague Three 1950s Screen Sirens?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Mari Blanchard! Peggie Castle! Allison Hayes! Incredibly, death stalked each one of these three gorgeous scream queens of the 1950s! All met tragic, premature demises by the time they reached their 40s! It definitely appears that a deadly curse was acting upon them. The chances for an incredible coincidence of this magnitude would be absolutely astronomical!

I certainly fared better than my friend Jordan, who was also there, and who was repeatedly introduced by someone else as Dick Feyman, winner of a Nobel in "something no one wants to hear over drinks." The woman to whom I'd been introduced listened to the hostess dish about my fascinating, though occasionally dark pieces. "I make dark films sometimes," she told me, with a smile that contradicted everything about the statement. Before she could tell me anything else, we were joined by another attractive guest who shortly detoured the conversation into the dating habits of contemporary women. "If I call a woman and leave a nice voicemail and she texts me back, tha ...
