Yvonne De Carlo grew up to be an exotic film star in such 1950s movies as Salome Where She Danced, Song of Scheherazade and The Ten Commandments. But getting there was far from easy.She started out in life as Peggy Yvonne Middleton. Although some sources say her name was Margaret, it seems fairly certain she was named Peggy by her parents. A life in front of the cameras could only have been a daydream for the young Miss Middleton. Her very first years were not a great time and herfather walked out of her life when she was just three-years-old. Her mom, to make ends meet, worked as a waitress, but she had once dreamed of a career in show business and did everything she could to start young Peggy on the road to stardom.
