Gloria DeHaven Facts
In 1944 De Haven came into the makeup and hair department at MGM to wash her hair in prep for a scene she was going to shoot. Halfway into the endeavor she felt a hand push her head into the bowl and began washing her hair. When she was finished she looked up and saw that it was Marlene Dietrich who had washed her hair. Dietrich had entered the room to pick up the gold paint she was using for to cover her left leg in _"Kismit"_ (1944) and figured that since she was there she would give De Haven a quick hairwash. De Haven was so stunned that she could hardly utter a thank you.

MGM allegedly suspended her for refusing to do the film Good News (1947).
