OK, who's the blond with Mickey Cohen? (No, it's not Walter O'Malley).

  • Candy Barr? (Two people). Nope, Candy Barr looks like this. The Daily Mirror doesn't do reruns!
  • LaVonne Cohen? Sorry, no.
  • Virginia Hill? Sorry, no.
  • Cheryl Crane? Sorry, no.
  • Liz Renay? Sorry, no.
  • Sandy Hashagen? (Nathan Marsak). Absolutely. This is Claretta Hashagen, a.k.a. Sandra or Sandy Hagen. Where is she now? I cannot find a trace of her in The Times after the Mickey Cohen saga.
