Blg. 81 (Hulyo 8, 1950)
Sa orihinal na komiks, siya ay kinatakutan at kinamuhian ng mga tao at ng tanging lalaking kaniyang minahal, si Edwardo. Ito ang nagbunsod sa kaniya sa kasamaan. Nagawa niya ring paslanging ang kaniyang mga magulang, at tinangka niyang lipulin ang mga tao at gawin ang buong daigdig na pugad ng mga ahas. Pinigilan siya ni Darna. Sa huli, isang malakas na lindol ang lumipol sa kaniyang mga kampon, at nang masukol siya ni Darna, siya ay nagpatiwakal, nagpatihulog sa bangin kung saan niya itinapon ang mga bangkay ng kaniyang mga magulang.

Marilyn Monroe and
(for the film The Prince and the Showgirl)
on the cover of Life July 8, 1957 issue.
Actor-director Laurence Olivier and Hollywood sex goddess Marilyn Monroe made a film together – The Prince and the Showgirl (1957). Olivier admired and praised Monroe saying: “a brilliant comedienne, which to me means she is also an extremely skilled actress.” He, however, criticized Monroe’s drama coach, Paula Strasberg, for being worthless and a fake. Monroe’s portrayal of the showgirl name Elsie Marina was lauded especially in Europe, where she won the David Donatello, the Italian equivalent of the American Academy Award, and also the French Crystal Star Award.
