On This Day
Joan Lucille Olander was born on this day in 1933 in Rowena. Her family would move to Sioux City and then Los Angeles by 1942, where Olander became an usherette at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. She became involved in minor movie scripts and by 1953 she had signed a contract with Universal studio, who requested that she re-name herself Mamie Van Doren, "Mamie" for President Eisenhower's wife, "Van Doren" after the famously academic Van Doren family. Van Doren starred in numerous films, including some of the first to feature rock n' roll, which gave her a "bad girl" image. Van Doren had five husbands, one child and numerous affairs, which she expounded upon in her 1987 autobiography, "Playing the Field."
