The glamorous green-eyed redhead began acting in a Birmingham repertory company and made her film debut in 1944. Her screen appearances, which ranged from comedy to melodrama in addition to the horror classics, included a short-lived situation comedy, Dick and the Duchess (1957–58), and numerous television guest spots.
