The lovely Natalie Schafer was born on this day in 1900. Few knew her real age until her death in 1991. She was the longtime girlfriend of American humorist George S. Kaufman. She reportedly left a large part of her multi-million-dollar estate to Dawn Wells, with whom she co-starred on Gilligan's Island as Lovey Howell. Wells has never commented.
