I know Kim Novak made many movies after Vertigo, but what is she doing today?
—Londa F. Azevedo, Pollock Pines, Calif.

Novak's last acting work was in the 1991 film Liebestraum. Now 75, she has little interest in Hollywood and is enjoying life far from the spotlight on several hundred acres along a scenic river in a small Oregon town that she prefers not to divulge. Art remains one of her lifelong passions, and some of her paintings have been exhibited around the world. She was working on her autobiography when a fire in her home destroyed many of her Hollywood mementoes—including her original Vertigo script—in 2000 and sidetracked that project. She recently celebrated her 32nd wedding anniversary to Dr. Robert Malloy, a veterinarian.
