Around age 7, she and the family moved to Burbank, California. It was there that she was discovered by a Warner Brothers scout after entering a Miss Burbank beauty pageant. She was immediately signed up by the massive studio.
When asked in a 2011 interview what she considered the turning point in her career, Reynolds replied: “Winning this contest, which was unusual. My suit came from the Salvation Army … I didn’t have high heels. There were talent scouts, and they thought I was a funny little kid. They took me to Warner Brothers and signed me up.” Reynolds and her daughter had patched up a previously rocky relationship and were very close until their untimely deaths.
