MINI BIO:

Pretty Yvonne Middleton from Vancouver, Canada, labored hard for three years as decoration on the fringe of Hollywood exotica and college comedies. But when they dressed her up in yashmak and bangles, and called her Yvonne de Carlo, she became a star. She put plenty of fire into a colorful series of easterns and westerns from 1945 to 1960 and even revealed a more delicate shade of beauty in the occasional quieter role.
