Appeared as an exotic dancer in Doris Day's Starlift. She really had an incredible figure.

LOL I'm amazed Rob has a listing for her. White Heat is indeed a terrific gangster movie. I was going to ask the other day but I didn't think she stood a chance having a listing! Looked about the same height as Cagney in it I thought

Howard Hawks, when he was asked about Virginia Mayo replied "pathetic". I like her. She appeared in a bunch of excellent movies. The flame and the arrow should be mentioned. White heat is a great movie. Colorado territory is excellent too
Regarding to height, she looked in the 1´65 area
