-Sent to Catholic convent schools by her father in the hopes (unrealized) that she would learn to stay out of trouble.
-Loved jazz music and was a mainstay at many popular jazz clubs in New York and LA.
-Once owned a pet lion named Winston.
-She was the very first white woman to appear on the cover of Ebony Magazine.
-President Harry S. Truman once claimed that her 1952 autobiography was the best book he had read since coming to the White House.
-Marlon Brando said, that Bankhead was primarily a personality actor that is, someone who did not have developed acting skills but got by on the basis of their personality. Brando believed that she could have been a great actress and a major movie star if she hadn’t been addicted to sex and alcohol.
-She was said to be the inspiration for the character of Cruella De Vil in Walt Disney’s One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961).
-She was infamous for not wearing underwear. According to Hume Cronyn, during the filming of Lifeboat (1944) the crew complained about her flashing them when she had to climb a ladder to go into the mock-up of a lifeboat. When their objections to Bankhead’s exhibitionism reached director Alfred Hitchcock, he reportedly quipped that he didn’t know if it was a matter for wardrobe or hairdressing.
-In 1949, Proctor and Gamble launched a radio advertising campaign for its Prell shampoo, using a jingle and the character “Tallulah The Tube”. Miss Bankhead was so closely identified by her first name that she sued, eventually settling out of court.
-The town of Tallulah, Louisiana, in the northeast part of the state was re-named for her after she spent the night there in the 1930s. (Also has a major highway named after her in Atlanta, Georgia.) by oldhollywoodandwine http://ift.tt/1hZxuUh

"I was very upset that I couldn’t wear my Easter Sunday dress or my Christmas dresses all the time. It didn’t make sense to me that I couldn’t wear something pretty all the time. So I began plotting my womanhood at a young age.
I advocate glamour. Every day. Every minute.”
