Pic of the Day: “Bayou” revisited

Our pic for today finds Timothy romancing fellow Brooklynite Lita Milan in Bayou (1957). Ulysses is about to dangle a sparkly fleur-de-lys necklace in front of Marie in an attempt to win her love, but she is having none of it.

Milan was a talented beauty who broke many hearts in Hollywood, including, by all accounts, those belonging to Ralph Meeker, Steve McQueen, Kirk Douglas and Paul Newman. She ended up marrying Rafael “Ramfis” Leonidas Trujillo Martinez Jr., son of the Dominican dictator, in 1960 after a stormy two-year relationship. She bore him two sons and became his widow in 1969, when he died from a post-auto accident bout of pneumonia.
