35 Beautiful Photos of Faith Domergue in the 1940s and ’50s

Born 1924 or 1925 in New Orleans, Louisiana, American actress Faith Domergue made her first on-screen appearance with an uncredited walk-on role in Blues in the Night (1941). She was signed to a contract with Hughes’ RKO Radio Pictures and cast as the lead in the studio’s thriller Vendetta, which had a troubled four-year production before finally being released in 1950.

Domergue appeared in science fiction and horror pictures, such as Cult of the Cobra, This Island Earth, It Came from Beneath the Sea, and The Atomic Man, all released in 1955, earning her a reputation as an early “scream queen”. Her later career consisted of B movies, television guest roles, and European productions.

Domergue spent her later years in retirement in Palo Alto, California. She died from an unspecified cancer in 1999, in Santa Barbara, at age 74. Take a look at these vintage photos to see the beauty of young Faith Domergue in the 1940s and 1950s.
