    (September 6, 1942-January 13, 1985)
    Best known as the 'Matinee Lady' opposite Johnny Carson's Art Fern character in his 'Tea Time Movie' skits on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson
    Also acted in 'Gunn (1967),' 'The Party (1968),' 'Scavenger Hunt (1979),' 'Gypsy Angels (1980),' 'Savannah Smiles (1982),' 'Surf II (1984),' 'E. Nick: A Legend in His Own Mind (1984)' and 'Heartbreakers (1984)'
    Acted as six different characters in six episodes of 'Love American Style' (1970-72)
    Drowned in Mexico at age 42
    She had one purpose in 'Art Fern's 'Tea Time Movie' skits with Carson; making stupid comments while the Fern character made lecherous remarks and stared at her tits a lot.
    She knew she was typecast for blonde bimbo roles and made no attempt to break this mold.
    She was thrice divorced.
    She abused alcohol and cocaine.
    When work dried up she became an escort for wealthy businessmen to make ends meet.
    The running joke was she'd never drown with boobs as big as hers (so much for that theory).
    She couldn't swim and didn't like venturing into the ocean, yet drowned in four feet of water.
    Her death remains a mystery. There were no marks on her to suspect foul play and she had no booze or drugs in her system at the time of her drowning.
    As a teen she skated with her sister in the Ice Capades until an injury ender her career.
    She was a topless showgirl at Foiles Bergere in Las Vegas.
    When The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson went from 90 to 60 minutes in 1980, sketches were greatly reduced. Her role as the 'Matinee Lady' was eventually phased out completely.
    Friends state she was funny, had a lively sense of humor and was never 'full of herself.'
