Renee Godfrey Biography

Date of Birth 1 September 1919, New York, New York, USA Date of Death 24 May 1964, Los Angeles, California, USA (cancer) Birth Name Renee Vera Haal Mini Biography Sultry-eyed, dark-haired and exquisite-looking, New York City-native Renee Godfrey certainly had the earnestness and requisite beauty to catapult herself to the top of the film industry but, in the end, fell quite short of her initial potential.
