Dark-haired, vivacious, larger-than-life sister of actress Joan Collins who quit an acting career to become the best-selling author of more than 30 raunchy novels, a few of which were filmed. She herself began as an actress, playing bit parts but also one or two minor leading roles; after a feature-length TV drama, The Pay Off (1955), she moved into films: They Never Learn (1956), Assignment Redhead (1956), Barnacle Bill (1957), It Could Be You (1957), The Safecracker (1957), Intent to Kill (1958), Passport to Shame (1958), High Flight (1958), The Shakedown (1960) and During One Night (1961), her last, apart from a cameo in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! in the year of her death from breast cancer. Producer Oscar Lerman, who died in 1992, was the second of her two husbands.
