1943. Eileen McClory is a vivacious, cute, girl-next-door type, so has just the kind of looks and personality that Harry Conover likes. So when she moved to Manhattan in the early-1940s after finishing at high school, it’s no surprise that he signed her up. Having made the journey to Hollywood to appear in Cover Girl, she will decide to stick around. She will manage to land roles in two forgettable movies before getting married in December 1945 and retiring to raise a large family. A caption on the back of the photo reads:
