Lila Leeds

Lila Leeds (born Lila Lee Wilkinson January 28, 1928 in Dodge City, Kansas, died September 15, 1999) was an American film actress. She was married to actor, composer, singer and conductor Jack Little.


She gained notoriety for being arrested together with actor Robert Mitchum on charges of marijuana possession on September 1, 1948. She subsequently spent some months in jail. Her acting career never really recovered from that episode.

Cheryl Crane, daughter of Lana Turner, in her autobiography, stated that Leeds was introduced to heroin use while in jail and became a full-blown addict afterwards, and was last heard from working in a drug rehabilitation facility in the mid-1970s.
