BIOGRAPHY

High fashion, style and glamour were not typically associated with First Ladies, yet Nancy Reagan embodied all that and more. As First Lady of the United States from 1981 to 1989, the widow of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan was one of the most closely observed and imitated women of her time, not only for her couture gowns but also for the issues she believed in, most notably the "Just Say No" drug awareness campaign which she launched in 1982. Yet before she stepped foot in the White House, Reagan - then known as Nancy Davis - dazzled audiences as an actress in post-war Hollywood. Although never an A-list talent, she became a fan favorite and appeared in films as diverse as the film noir "Shadow on the Wall" (1950) and the rousing military romance "Hellcats of the Navy" (1957) - the only movie where she acted alongside the country's future commander-in-chief. Although her Hollywood career was brief, it was her tenure as First Lady and keeper of her husband's flame that most endeared her to fans around the world.
