Leggy blonde dancer, strutting her stuff in films from the age of 20.

Sharp eyes will spot her in The One Piece Bathing Suit (1952), House of Wax (1953), Love Me Or Leave Me (1955), Artists and Models (1955), The Best Things in Life Are Free (1956), Curucu, Beast of the Amazon (1956), The Pajama Game (1957), South Pacific (1958), Ask Any Girl (1959), Who Was That Lady? (1960), The Music Man (1962), Mary Poppins (1964), The Sound of Music (1965), Frankie and Johnny (1966) and The Silencers (1966). She then went into TV, dancing on music specials. Much later, she appeared in the films In God We Tru$t (1980) and Earth Girls Are Easy (1988), her last. Married first to actor John Bromfield, but latterly to dancer Bruce Hoy, she died following a fall.
