Trivia (2)

Assertive, voluptuous redhead, late 1960s 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)). Seven years later she appeared in one of the very last (Ironside: The Organizer (1975)), although because NBC abruptly canceled the show, it wasn't shown during the network run. It has since been shown in syndication.
