Personal Quote:

[Dallas Morning News, May 20, 1963, regarding co-star Richard Burton in Cleopatra] I was supposed to be one of Mark Antony's mistresses and he grabs me as I dance by. His kiss didn't do a thing to me. He is a very intellectual person and very appealing, but he likes to take advantage of people.


A 1957 graduate of W.H. Adamson High School in Dallas. See more »
