    She chose an oddball spelling of her first name to garner attention.
    She was typecast as the 'good girl' in film noirs.
    She said, 'I was always the goody two shoes, but I wanted to be a sex symbol.'
    She admitted, 'As an actress, I was never secure.... I had a fear of screwing up.'
    New York Times critic Elvis Mitchell described her as 'luminous.'
    She said, 'Everything I did, whether it was low budget or a bad script, if you are going to do it and they’re paying you, you better believe in it and do it right.'
    After leaving acting, she became active in Charles Colson's Prison Fellowship, ministering to inmates and their families.
