Evelyn Keyes Facts
She wrote a novel entitled "I Am a Billboard" which told the story of a Southern girl who becomes an overnight star in Hollywood and the trials and tribulations she endures as a result. The storyline obviously paralleled her own life in many ways.

Her death wasn't announced until 11 July 2008 because attorneys were waiting for the death certificate to be filed.

She has one son, Pablo, from her marriage to John Huston. In Huston's autobiography, he writes of how he found the boy while making a movie in Mexico. After finding out the boy was homeless and an orphan, he adopted him and brought him back to the USA, unbeknownst to his wife. He met Evelyn at the airport and shocked her by introducing her to their new son. Evelyn, who ' was not going to spend her life raising other lives', was not pleased. Most of her marriages ended because of her lack of desire to start a family, although that would have meant adopting (she could not have children of her own). (However, according to Evelyn's autobiography, her father-in-law Walter Huston had already spilled the beans before the boy arrived.) Pablo eventually married an Irish girl, had three children, and then deserted his family and became a used car dealer.
