Mini Bio (1)

Lovely, buxom and shapely redhead Marli Renfro was a professional stripper and glamor model who appeared in a handful of men's magazines from the late 1950s up until the mid-'60s. Among the adult publications her photos were featured in are "Ace," "Beau," "Adam," "Follies," "Gala," "Modern Man," and "Escapade." Moreover, Marli graced the cover of the September 1960 issue of "Playboy." The 23-year-old Renfro was paid $400 a week by Alfred Hitchcock to be the uncredited body double for Janet Leigh in the infamous shower murder set piece in the horror slasher classic Psycho (1960). Leigh claimed in numerous interviews that she did the bulk of the shower scene herself and that the only time Marli was used was when her corpse is wrapped up in plastic by Anthony Perkins. Marli Renfro's only other film gig was a sizable part in the innocuous soft-core "nudie-cutie" Western Tonight for Sure (1962), which was directed by none other than a very young Francis Ford Coppola.
