Rob can you add a photo and films Stella, Topkapi, Phaedra, Never on Sunday, The Man Could Get Killed, Promise at Dawn, The Victors, A Dream of Passion and The Law. Seems a reasonable shout. Scary woman, but oddly alluring!

Most vivid recollection of this 5'7" Greek actress/politician? After she was nailed as "What's My Line?" "mystery guest" by Wesley Lau in 1962,Lau told "What's My Line?" announcer Johnny Gilbert to throw two dingbats off the stage because they promoted a computer dating service,which is why I don't want to do computer dating. (This was the same Wesley Lau who tagged panelist Jean Byron as being the star of "The Patty Duke Show," but it hadn't premiered yet!)

Hrmm... really? Having just seen "Never on Sunday," I would've guessed closer to 5'8" She's very lanky and so appears taller, I suppose!
