    The advertisement she appeared in was nicknamed 'Daisy', although Olsen claimed that Black Eyed Susans were actually shown and used.
    Some suggested that Olsen's 'Daisy' ad was inspired by the 1931 'Frankenstein' movie scene where the monster drowns a young girl after she gives him flowers.
    Her parents did not allow her to view the political ad during broadcast due to its topic and content.
    Her parents were not politically active during her childhood, and she was not a politically active adult.
    Her Johnson promotional ad aired only once due to criticism about using a nuclear war threat to manipulate voters.
    Her ad suggested that Johnson's opponent Barry Goldwater might escalate the Vietnam War.
    Her countdown to a nuclear explosion while picking flower petals was considered one of the most controversial political ads ever created.
    Her ad was compared to Hillary Rodham Clinton's '3AM' political ad featuring Casey Knowles.
    A bicycle/taxi collision during adulthood disfigured her severely and temporarily halted her acting career.
    She was a successful child model and actor, as were her siblings Annette and Fritz Olsen.
    Her 'Peace, Little Girl' ad strongly influenced Lyndon Johnson's U. S. Presidential victory over Barry Goldwater.
    Her ad was so influential that it was part of a Time magazine cover story on nuclear warfare.
    Her ad became influential in future political advertising and pop culture.
    When asked if her ad was fair to Barry Goldwater, she suggested she was unsure about what should be considered fair and just in politics.
    After 15 surgeries on her face she resumed her acting career.
    Her adult careers included teaching art, health care, pet massage therapy and travel assistance to blues musician Henry Butler.
