  • Notes 
    • While her father was U.S. Consul in Tahiti, Mano met the future actor, Sterling Hayden. They fell in love and were engaged to be married. Later, after he had returned to the United States, he broke off the engagement. Mano always said that not marrying Sterling Hayden was one of the best things that happened to her.
