Kim Novak Facts
Went on a personal strike in 1957 protesting her current salary of $1,250 per week.

Visited Sammy Davis Jr. in hospital shortly before his death.

On July 24 2000, she watched her memento-filled house in Eagle Point, Oregon, go up in flames. A deputy fire marshal said that the blaze was probably the result of a tree that fell across an electrical power line. Included in the loss were scripts to some of her movies (Vertigo (1958) and Picnic (1955)), as well as her computer, which contained her long-gestating autobiography. Spared, however, were her menagerie of animals, including horses and llamas, as well as the star's husband of 24 years, veterinarian Bob Malloy. She later said that the fire was a sign that she shouldn't be writing an autobiography.
