Although most sources list Moorehead's birth date as 1906, her stage career and the book "Die Showbusiness Enzyklopadie" by Honig and Rodek indicate 1900.
Moorehead is one of the many cast and crew members who were rumored to have contracted cancer while filming "The Conquerer" near an atomic test site. Other alleged victims included director Dick Powell and co-stars John Wayne, Susan Hayward and Pedro Armendariz.
