Peter Pan (1953) ~ 22 year-old Margaret Kerry (who measured 35-25-36, and provides the voice of the red-haired mermaid) was the real-life model for Tinker Bell. Persistent rumors have incorrectly named Marilyn Monroe in this position.
The original Tinkerbell was a brat, and I loved that about her. It made her seem so real instead of perfect. Her brattiness was a huge part in Peter Pan. Now because Disney can't think of any other ideas they made her nice and have 3 billion sequels. Stay real Tink!
