BiographyRhosllannerchrugog, Wales, UK
Rosemarie Frankland was a beautiful young girl in London, working behind the counter at Marks and Spencer, who ended up becoming Britain's first Miss World in 1961. She began an affair with Bob Hope that lasted more than twenty years. She even moved in to his home in Palm Springs at one point. Although at first he helped her launch what seemed to be the possibility of a career in Hollywood, this was not to be. Read more... only a few. Frankland's acting ability was limited at best and Hope never gave her any more assistance with acting roles, although later in their affair she was considered his personal assistant. After a life of drugs, alcohol and depression over her career and two failed marriages, she was found by police in her cheap Los Angeles apartment, dead at 57 of a combination of prescription pills and tequila.
