Wikipedia (visit link) informs us:

"Helen Luella Koford (born January 7, 1929), better known as Terry Moore, is an American film and television actress...
Moore worked in radio in the 1940s, most memorably as Bumps Smith on The Smiths of Hollywood. She has starred in several box office hits, including Mighty Joe Young (1949), Come Back, Little Sheba (1952) (for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress), and Peyton Place (1957). She appeared on the cover of Life magazine for July 6, 1953, as "Hollywood's sexy tomboy". Moore's photo was used on the cover of the second issue of the My Diary romance comic book (cover dated March 1950).

During the 1950s, Moore worked steadily in films like The Great Rupert (1950), Two of a Kind (1951), Man on a Tightrope (1953), Daddy Long Legs (1955), Between Heaven and Hell (1956), Bernardine (1957), A Private's Affair (1959), and Why Must I Die? (1960).

By the 1960s, Moore's film career had faltered. She had began to appear less frequently in films. However, she did make films like Platinum High School (1960), She Should Have Stayed in Bed (1963), Black Spurs (1965), Waco (1966), and A Man Called Dagger (1967). Lacking film roles, Moore appeared on television. In 1962, she appeared as a rancher's daughter in the NBC Western Empire. She also appeared on the NBC interview program Here's Hollywood.

After the 1960s, Moore semi retired from acting, only completing two films in the 1970s; though by the 1980s her career had resumed with minor roles in low-budgeted B-movies. Moore has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7080 Hollywood Blvd.

Personal life

In the 1940s, Moore lived with Howard Hughes. After Hughes died in 1976, Moore claimed that they secretly married in 1949. Moore stated that the ship's log and any documentation of the marriage was destroyed and the couple never officially divorced. Despite this claim, Moore married three other men after 1949, including an eleven-year marriage to Stuart Cramer with whom she has two children. Moore failed to provide any evidence of a marriage, but the Hughes's estate paid her a settlement in 1984.

Moore wrote two books about Hughes:

Terry Moore - The Beauty and the Billionaire, New York (1984).
Terry Moore and Jerry Rivers - The Passions of Howard Hughes. General Publishing Group (1996), an abridged audio book version narrated by Moore. She claims that Hughes was denied medical treatment by people conspiring to take over his estate."
