No starlet in Hollywood fell quite as far as Betty Hutton. After losing her family and career, Hutton was found homeless and alone on the streets, struggling to find a place to sleep for the night. This blonde bombshell was a mere echo of the beauty she used to be—and yet, her greatest tragedy was by far her devastating end.

Elizabeth June Thornburg, better known later as Betty Hutton, was born in Michigan, in the winter of 1921. She had a hard life right from the get-go. When she was only two years old, her dad abandoned the family. Devastated, her alcoholic mom struggled to make ends meet for her two little daughters and eventually decided to move to Detroit.
