She was a major box-office draw in the '50s, even topping the box-office standing of Marilyn Monroe, and Thursday, the day before Valentine's Day, marks the 81st birthday of Kim Novak.

Legendary screen siren Kim Novak, best known for her work in the 1958 Alfred Hitchcock thriller Vertigo, is expected to make a full recovery after being diagnosed with breast cancer, her manager says.

"It was caught early by a routine yearly mammogram, and [she] is undergoing treatment. All her doctors say she is in fantastic physical shape and should recover very well," Sue Cameron tells the Hollywood Reporter.

Novak, 77, a No. 1 box office star in the 1950s, gave up the Hollywood limelight for a quiet life on a 240-acre ranch in Oregon with her veterinarian husband Bob Malloy, whom she married in 1976.
