Marilyn Maxwell was a platinum blonde, curvaceous movie actress and entertainer who, in addition to appearing in many films and radio programs, also entertained the troops on USO tours . She started her professional entertaining career as a radio singer while still a teenager before signing with MGM as a contract player. Among the programs in which she appeared was The Abbott and Costello Show.
In 1972, Maxwell’s 15-year-old son arrived home from school and found her dead at age 50 of an apparent heart attack, after she had been treated for high blood pressure and pulmonary disease. Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Jack Benny were honorary pall bearers at her funeral.

Ghost World is a 2001 film by Terry Zwigoff, based on a graphic novel by Daniel Clowes. It stars Thora Birch, Scarlett Johansson and Steve Buscemi. Although the film was not a box-office blockbuster, it was enormously acclaimed by critics and has established a strong cult following.
The story focuses on the life of two teenage friends, Enid (Thora Birch) and Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson), who are outside of the normal high school social order in an unnamed suburb, often assumed to be in or around Los Angeles, where much of the movie was shot.
