Trivia (4)

Was filming a commercial in 1969 when an elephant stepped on her. She was confined to bed for five months and grueling physical therapy for some time after that. That experience, plus her sensitive reading, helped Marilyn win the coveted role of Jill Kinmont in The Other Side of the Mountain (1975) over four hundred hopefuls. She also reprised the role in The Other Side of the Mountain: Part II (1978).
Studied drama at Cal State.
Worked in a bank, drove a taxi in Beverly Hills and photographed record album covers prior to getting her first break as an actress.
Ex-daughter-in-law of Jan Peerce.
