One child, Jonathan Jackson Poe, born 1971.

She has one child, a son named Jonathan Jackson Poe who was born in August of 1971 with her ex-husband, James Poe.

She was reportedly the last person to be signed as a contract player by the J. Arthur Rank Organization.

She was the original female lead to Elvis Presley in Flaming Star (1960). She walked off the picture after an argument with director Don Siegel.

The part of Alice LeBlanc in They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969) was written by James Poe--her husband--specifically for her, but it turned out she wasn't able to do it and it was given to Susannah York instead.

Was slightly injured by Vincent Price while filming her last scene from Pit and the Pendulum (1961) when he quite aggressively grabbed her by her throat - she shrugged it off because the scene came off so real.
