Debra Paget, For Example
Debra Paget was a contract player for 20th-Century Fox, whom they groomed and coached for stardom. But she never quite caught on. Maybe the movies weren't interesting enough. Or maybe she didn’t stand out from the rest of the pack. Or the studio didn’t take enough care in shaping her image. She had a ten-year run during the 50s as an above-the-title star. But left it all at the age of 29, never to return to the screen. A reconsideration of her career and the fetishistic aftershock of some of her films. Even the memory and essence of minor stars can affect people’s lives.
