Then she costarred with Ronald Reagan in The Winning Team and with Sterling Hayden in Kansas Pacific. Unfortunately she never became an A-list star. Eve became engaged to actor Glase Lohman. The couple had an argument in July of 1955 and he told her he couldn't marry her. She was so upset that she attempted suicide by stabbing herself in the abdomen with a kitchen knife! During the 1950s she appeared on television shows like Perry Mason and Frontier Doctor. Her final role was in a 1961 episode of Coronado. As she got older she began suffering from severe depression. Tragically on August 17, 1973 she committed suicide with an overdose of pills. Eve was only fifty years old. She was buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, California.
