ANITA LOUISE ADLER, Maybelline's Scarlett O'Hara.

Anita Louise, may not have won the part of Scarlett O'Hara, but she was most assuredly, one of Maybelline's most stunning models in 1938.

She was selected to do a screen test for the role of Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind in 1938, but of course, the role went to Vivien Leigh.




Anita Louise was described as one of cinema's most fashionable and stylish women.  She and her husband Buddy Adler, were known for their parties, attended by Hollywood's elite.

At the time Anita was cast for the role of the loving and caring mother Nell McLaughlin in My Friend Flicka, she had been married to Buddy Adler—a top executive with 20th Century-Fox.

From Here to Eternity winners: director Fred Zinnemann, supporting actress Donna Reed, producer Buddy Adler and screenwriter Daniel Taradash.
