  Born Katherine Elizabeth McLaughlin on 8 June 1921, dimunitive Kansas U.S.A. native Sheila Ryan was discovered in L.A. and was signed by 20th Century Fox in 1940. She worked with such notables as Laurel and Hardy, Gene Autry, and Roy Rogers. While working with Autry, Ryan met (the one and only) Pat Buttram, and they married in 1952. Post-career,at just 54 years of age, she succumbed to a mysterious lung ailment from which she had apparently been unwell for several years. Strangely enough, physicians were unable to diagnose the specific disease that claimed her life.

Your comment is spot-on, as usual V ... I searched quite a bit to find a photo like this; she had a trademark, dimpled smile and it would have been much easier to get a likeness using a shot like that ... the photo I used for this was very poor quality B & W, and neither it, nor my attempt, do her justice. ;xD :hug:

I dunno, it seems to me that you did great with the photo you used as that's very much how the lady looks like according to Google. And the photos that show the smile you mention are way too small. :whip: :cute:

No idea to what extent editing software can increase a pic's definition and size without loss. :/

Took your (as usual) spot-on advice and am now using my camera's proper photo editor :whip: :whip: :whip:
