The Retro Hollywood article contradicts itself. It says she "did NOT have children" and later says she was a mother of two.

ges -- good catch! Perhaps they were step-children? Or more likely just a mistake in the article. I can't find any reference to kids in news articles from the time.

How many more years have to pass before the grave becomes a legitimate target for archaeologists?
