A Short Pictorial Tribute to Evelyn Keyes on Her 100th Birthday

It was 100 years ago today, on November 20 1916, that Evelyn Keyes was born. Today she is best known for playing the eldest of Scarlett O'Hara's younger sisters, Suellen, in Gone With the Wind (1939).  While she would not go onto the sort of career Vivien Leigh or even necessarily Ann Rutherford (who played the youngest O'Hara girl, Carreen), Evelyn Keyes would go onto play other, more notable roles.
