She was born in 1928 in Georgia. This red-curly haired girl with prominent breasts became a daring and sharpness pin-up thanks to the photographer and film director Russ Meyer who discovered her. She featured different striptease shows as her famous "Desert dance" and acted in some "nudie" films such as "French Peep Show" (1950) directed by Russ Meyer, "Paris after Midnight" (1951) by Robert C. Dertano, "Striptease Girl" (1952) produced by Dan Sonney, "Teaserama" (1955) by Irving Klaw where she played a role with Bettie Page, or "Buxom Beautease" (1956) also directed by Irving Klaw.
At the end of 50's as most famous women would do it in the same way, she insured her breasts for one million dollars at Lloyd's of London.
She was married four times an during her career years it was said that she had different love affairs with John F. Kennedy, Elvis Presley, Sammy Davis Jr. or Vic Damone.
