Ann Dvorak. An actress of that magical time before "the code." She played, molls, addicts, martyrs, and tough cookies to end all tough cookies. She shoots it out with the cops in "Scarface" and flings herself out a window with a note written on her nightgown in lipstick.

Ann Dvorak (August 2, 1911 – December 10, 1979) was an American film actress. Asked how to pronounce her adopted surname, she told The Literary Digest: "My name is properly pronounced vor'shack. The D remains silent. I have had quite a time with the name, having been called practically everything from Balzac to Bickelsrock."
