Child actress of the 1930's and 1940's who grew up with a stable adult life. The youngest ever Academy Award winner. Later served the United States as the US representative to the United Nations, a foreign ambassador and as Chief of Protocol.

Here popularity was so great, the non-alcoholic beverage was named after her. It was allegedly first created for her.

I was just listening to an interview with her (from 1985), in which she says that the concoction was indeed named after her, but otherwise had nothing to do with her. She thought it was cloyingly sweet.
