Barbara Lawrence Facts
Born in Oklahoma, she was raised for a time in Kansas City, Missouri, before she and her mother moved to Los Angeles.

After dating for only a couple of weeks, she eloped at age 18 in January of 1947 with a young contract actor named John Fontaine, aka Jeffrey Stone. They both appeared in the Fox musical movie You Were Meant for Me (1948). The marriage was kept secret until June 28, 1947, when her mother gave Barbara a church wedding in Beverly Hills. The marriage was over a year later.

In 1947 she was involved in an incident that seemed to foreshadow the stalking incidents that are so common today. While at the movies she was stabbed by an unknown assailant. The wound was so deep that she was treated at the Santa Monica Emergency Hospital. The assailant was never found.
