Pert blonde American actress, the subject of hundreds of pin-up posters. Born Elaine Sterling and originally a dancer and singer, she ventured into dramatic acting in the early 1950s and gracefully played a few fairly minor leading roles: Easter Parade (1948), Julia Misbehaves 1948), Neptune's Daughter (1949), Duchess of Idaho (1950), Sign of the Pagan (1954), Magnificent Obsession (1954), Daddy Long Legs (1955), Three Bad Sisters (1956), The King and Four Queens (1956), Affair in Havana (1957) and Tarzan's Greatest Adventure (1959), her last feature film, although she continued in TV drama series until 1964, after which she reinvented herself again, writing two books, and moving to Australia, involved in pharmaceuticals and healthy living, where she died at 94.
