There was steel behind the delicate appearance of this gossamer Hollywood blonde. It helped her progress from the milk-and-water nature of her first few roles, to much tougher characters later in her career. Of French/Mexican parentage, she was in films as a teenager, and a star at 18: A Certain Smile (1958), The Time Machine (1960), Where the Boys Are (1961), Light in the Piazza (1961), Diamond Head (1962), Toys in the Attic (1963), Looking for Love (1964), Joy in the Morning (1965), Monkeys, Go Home! (1966), Carnival of Thieves (1967), Three in the Attic (1968), The Picasso Summer (1969), The Delta Factor (1970), Skyjacked (1972), The Neptune Factor (1973), Journey into Fear (1975), Jackson County Jail (1976), The Black Hole (1979), Mystique/Circle of Power (1980) and The Fascination (1985), her last film. She continued to be seen in TV series until 1992. The second of her three husbands was director Stanley Donen. She died 'from natural causes'.
