Although she worked extensively as a television actress in the 1950s, she is best-remembered as an actress for her role as Lily Carver (Kiss Me Deadly, 1955). Her only other theatrical film role was in a gritty 1953 New York indie, The Big Break. She appeared on the cover of the January 1957 issue of Cosmopolitan, representing "The New Face of Broadway".
The daughter of art dealer, Saemy Rosenberg, and the niece of the philosopher, Edmund Husserl, Rodgers was born in Germany but grew up in Amsterdam. She was married for many years to lyricist Jerry Leiber, half of the songwriting team of Leiber & Stoller, who wrote "Hound Dog", "Jailhouse Rock", and other songs. Rodgers is frequently cited as co-author of the song "Jackson" with Billy Edd Wheeler, but this is untrue; Leiber wrote the song with Wheeler, using his then-wife's name as a pseudonym.
