    She failed to meet her potential as a leading lady and was reduced to television spots by the late 1970s.

    She had the role of a showgirl in the original Broadway run of 'Funny Girl.'
    She is in the opening scene of 'Harry and Tonto' as a hooker who picks up a hitch hiking Art Carney (he would win an Oscar for the film).

    She made the gradual shift to television after marrying and having a child with producer Bernie Orenstein (they have been together for over forty years).
    She had a small comeback in her later years with a recurring role on the popular soap opera 'One Life to Live.'
