Stephanos, “fortune teller to the stars,” read the palm of a Hollywood actress for the July 1959 issue of Modern Screen magazine. He found many positive qualities, but there was a terrible caveat. Warned Stephanos, “It is her life line that worries me. It snaps in a number of places. Accidents, illnesses, and critical dangers cut through it. The life line tells us that [she] is frail. She must always carefully guard her health.” To which 1950s-era film star was Stephanos referring?
