Lynne Baggett was not a successful film star. The highlight of her career was a 1948 marriage to Hollywood producer Sam Spiegel. She played mostly uncredited parts in movies. Baggett experienced a spiral of despair which led to suicide in 1960. Like Marilyn Monroe pills were found close to her bedside. Unique to Lynne was her progressive disintegration after a car accident that killed a young man.
