Although I hadn’t heard of 1940s film star Virginia Mayo, the Newsday obit caught my eye because of this little tidbit:

As a young star known for her ash blond hair, peaches-and-cream complexion, green eyes and curvaceous figure, Mayo caught the fancy of the sultan of Morocco, who wrote her a fan letter in which he proclaimed her to be “tangible proof of the existence of God.”

I’ll say.
