What A-list actress and sex symbol was pimped out by her father when she was still very much underage?
After they would perform at a nightclub, some of them on the US-Mexico border, father would bring daughter backstage where she would orally service much older men.
One gave her the gift that keeps on giving and she wound up in the hospital after taking some possibly illegal medication.
When she was starting out in Hollywood and had to use the casting couch to get a role, she started drinking to numb the flashbacks.
Here is an old article about her Biography: http://www.nytimes.com/1989/11/19/books/what-we-have-here-is-a-very-sad-story.html
