Day 16 of Noirvember, Part 1: Remembering Barbara
Barbara Payton’s life was more noirish than the noiriest noir.
But that’s not the story we’re telling today. (Some snowy night, in front of the fire, as Margo Channing would say.)
Instead, we’re simply remembering this lovely but tragic actress on the occasion of her birth, November 16, 1927. We’re also offering her up as a teaser for a post later today on actor Tom Neal — who figured prominently in Payton’s life.
Stay tuned — and light a candle for Barbara today.
