    She went from the stage name Jennie Lewis to a pretentious single name.
    She was thrice married.
    Her role on 'Broadway Open House' called for her to 'wear a low-cut gown, sit on a stool and act dumb.'
    To say her variety show was 'short-lived' would be a gross understatement.
    Her 'ditzy blonde' persona didn't carry over into the 1960's and she fell off the TV radar.
    She performed in Broadway musicals and comedies.
    She was a huge hit on 'Broadway Open House,' receiving over 8,000 fan letters a month.
    He salary on the show skyrocketed from $75 a week to over $3,000 per week.
    Dagmar bumpers (aka 'Dagmars') built on '50s Cadillacs, Buicks and Lincolns were named after her.
    Though Life magazine called her a 'national institution,' she never forgot her West Virginia roots and was honored as 'Huntington's first citizen.'
