Actress Dorothy Lamour died this morning at her North Hollywood home.
The cause of death is not known.
Lamour was often typecast as a sort of female Tarzan in a string of island-theme movies in the late 1930's and early '40s.
She wore her trademark wraparound sarong in the first of the Hope-Crosby "Road" pictures, "The Road to Singapore," in 1940.
The "Road" films combined adventure, slapstick, zany ad libs and inside-show-biz satire.
Lamour was born in New Orleans in 1914.
