She came to a sad end
Actress Jean Hagen was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Lina Lamont in the movie Singin' In The Rain. Then she was nominated three times for an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Danny Thomas' wife on Make Room For Daddy.
Hagen's drinking problem became to bad that she finally lapsed into a coma in the UCLA medical center. She later recovered and never drank again. However, she contracted throat cancer and died of that at the age of 54.
