    She claimed birth years as late as 1936.
    A 'Life' magazine article dubbed her 'Hollywood's newest dumb blonde.'
    Most of her film work was either in B-movies or in decorative bit parts that did not require much acting talent.
    She lost two potential break-out roles, in 'All About Eve' and 'The Asphalt Jungle,' to Marilyn Monroe.
    She may have had breast enlargement in the mid-60s.
    She was married four times, with her first two marriages lasting less than a year.
    When Orson Welles spotted her in a group of 100 actresses auditioning for a small part in 'Touch of Evil,' he immediately announced 'Tell all the other girls to go.'
    She appeared in over 300 episodes of television series and was nicknamed 'the Marilyn Monroe of TV.'
    During an actors' strike, she took up singing and became a successful nightclub act.
    She starred in a number of short musical films for Scopitone (essentially, pre-MTV music videos).
    She was a popular pin-up during the Vietnam War and was named 'Miss Armed Forces Day.' (1967)
    Her pick for the sexiest actor she ever worked with? Ozzie Nelson.
