North was 72. In 1955, she replaced Monroe in How to Be Very, Very Popular,with Betty Grable. The studio used her to keep the often-temperamental Marilyn in line – a familiar tactic during Hollywood's golden era. North, done up as a platinum blonde, was said to share Monroe's exact height and measurements.
Her other notable film was in 1954's Living It Up, opposite Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.
