Pneumatic American blonde star with little to offer beyond outsize breasts, a cute face, and a little-girl voice - enough to propel her to stardom in a few major films at that home of busty blondes through the years, 20th Century Fox.

Died in a car crash.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Character Actors: an Illustrated Directory).
