Former Weekly cover girl Jeanne Carmen dies
Jeanne Carmen, the cotton-picking country child turned B-movie queen and '50s pinup girl went gently into that good night Thursday at her Irvine home, succumbing to lymphoma. She was 77.
Carmen graced the cover of OC Weekly's Holiday Gift Issue in 1998, and former staffer Steve Lowery wrote about her in '97. Our online archives don't go back that far, but do check out later pieces by Lowery and Rebecca Schoenkopf.
