Maybelline, Vampires, werewolves and monsters.

Known for having "The most beautiful eyes in Hollywood,"  Lenore Aubert,  appeared in this beautiful color, glossy, autographed Maybelline ad, in 1948, as well as popular Vampire movies.

Lenore Aubert, was born in present-day Slovenia, at the time still connected to the Austro-Hungarian Empire (her French name was pure Hollywood hokum, designed to make her background more exotic - though she did live for some time in Paris). Eleanore Maria Leisner was the daughter of an Austrian general and spent her formative years in Vienna.

, Lenore Aubert,  played many a mysterious foreigner or femme fatale:  she was at her slinky best in              
the 1948 horror comedy,  Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948).

Who's On First?  Abbott and Costello greatest skit.

Vampire, Werewolves and monsters have come a long way since 1948.  Special effects have made them blockbusters, with the highest paid Stars ever.  Though, Lenore Aubert was a glamorous, mysterious, actress in her day, she pales in the shadow of Breaking Dawn's Kristen Stewart.  Check the trailer for Breaking Dawn and see what a difference 63 years of cinema can make!

  PS, I loved the movie!!!
