Faith Domergue

Faith Domergue (June 16, 1924 – April 4, 1999) was an American television and film actress. Born in New Orleans, Domergue was adopted by Adabelle Wemet when she was six weeks old. When Faith was 18 months old (in 1926), Adabelle married Leo Domergue. The family moved to California in 1928 where Domergue attended Beverly Hills Catholic School and St. Monica's Convent School. While still in high school, she was signed to a Warner Brothers contract, and made her first on-screen appearance in Blues in the Night (1941). After graduating in 1942, Domergue continued to pursue a career in acting, but after sustaining injuries in a near-fatal car accident, her plans were put on hold. While recuperating from the accident, she attended a party aboard Howard Hughes's yacht. Hughes was taken by her, so he bought out her contract with Warner, and signed her to a three-picture contract with RKO. After an unsuccessful, long-delayed premiere in the film Vendetta (1950), Domergue left Hughes.
