Assertive, voluptuous redhead late 60s starlet contracted by Universal, best known for playing the plucky lady bandit Penelope ("Bad Penny") Cushings opposite queasy, milquetoast Don Knotts in his comedy vehicle The Shakiest Gun in the West (1968).
Her acting debut was on one of the first Ironside episodes (Ironside: The Man Who Believed (1967)).
