Golden Age Hollywood gave us actresses whose names will live for as long as the movies do, like Marilyn Monroe, Mae West, Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor, and others. Behind the carefully-crafted publicity campaigns, there are plenty of secrets about these women that the studios hid from the public. But the trivia in the latest episode of Scatterbrained from Mental Floss isn't limited to scandals. Learn about the restrictions they worked under, the lengths they went for a role, and their lesser-known accomplishments, too. On top of all that, the show has a section debunking common misconceptions about Hollywood actresses.
