MINI BIO:So what was wrong with Marilyn Louis? At any rate, the change of name did this stunning, green-eyed American redhead little good until she was selected as Bing Crosby's leading lady in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.

Married (fourth of five) to producer-director Hall Bartlett from 1966 to 1971. Joint founder of the Rhonda Fleming Mann Resource Center for Women with Cancer.
