However, though it was a box office and critical bomb upon its release, it will nevertheless forever be a showcase for Helen Slater’s charming first s... Read full article

Faye Dunaway Facts
Competing for beauty titles was considered de rigueur for Southern girls in the 1950s, and Dunaway remembers in her autobiography that she was somehow convinced that she could NOT leave Florida until she won one. She missed being crowned May Queen at Leon High School in Tallahassee by a mere six votes, and had another near-miss at a title when she was voted runner up for Miss University of Florida in 1959. Dunaway finally scored her beauty crown when she was named Sweetheart of Sigma Chi, and promptly transferred to Boston University.

Adopted a son, Liam Dunaway O'Neill, with her ex-husband, renowned British photographer Terry O'Neill.

In order to be taken seriously as an actress, she turned down a regular role on "Guiding Light" (1952) in 1965.
