Personal Quote:

[In a 1968 interview] I was never a wild party girl, and I never lived beyond my means. I saved my money, and one day I woke up and said 'I've had it.' And I just stopped working.

Trivia:

Started in show business as an eleven year old singer in vaudeville in San Francisco. See more »
