Seductive brunette leading lady Faith Domergue never quite made it to the front ranks of Hollywood stardom. Discovered by billionaire Howard Hughes, Faith was given the standard big buildup, achieving above-the-title billing in 1950's Vendetta and Where Danger Lives. Moviegoer response was not favorable, and thereafter Hughes and Domergue parted company. She married director Hugo Fregonese and continued to accept leading roles in adventure and science fiction films; in the latter category, she offered memorably energetic performances in This Island Earth (1955) and The Atomic Man (1956). Still acting into the 1970s, Faith Domergue published a memoir of her early career, 1972's My Life With Howard Hughes.
