Susanne Benton (born February 3, 1948) is an American actress known for her film roles as General Dreedle's WAC in Catch-22 (1970) and Quilla June Holmes in A Boy and His Dog (1975). During her early roles she refused to disrobe for her parts, despite the requests of her Universal Studios bosses.[1] She appeared topless in Playboy in the May 1970 issue. In 1972, she appeared in the Andy Griffith film The Strangers in 7A, credited under her birth name, Susanne Hildur. She also used that alias when appearing in Barnaby Jones a year later.

She became convinced at the age of six that she would become a major star. She also believed that she would die before she reached her 28th birthday.[2] She married James A Benton in 1966.
