I wasn't a sex symbol, I was a sex zombie. - Veronica Lake

Interesting facts about Veronica Lake:

Lake was born as Constance Frances Marie Ockelman in Brooklyn, New York.
Lake was sent to Villa Maria, an all-girls Catholic boarding school in Montreal, Canada, which she hated and from which she was expelled.

The Archie Comics character Veronica Lodge was partially named after Veronica Lake, who was in the midst of her early celebrity when the comic book character was introduced in the spring of 1942.

"You could put all the talent I had into your left eye and still not suffer from impaired vision." Veronica Lake

I couldn't find any other quotes by Ms. Lake but I do so love the zombie quote above.


  1. Liz. Not about Veronica Lake but just dropping in to say hello and put your blog on my list to check weekly. Janet

  2. Jeez, you would think it would be Betty named after Veronica Lake, not the brunette!

  3. Love the quote. I think you're on to something - now to figure out steampunk.

  4. I think you're on to something. Now to figureout what steam punk is ...

  5. I'm not sure I'm liking the whole sex zombie thing. It's an uncomfortable visual for me.
