Born in Louisiana, her first role was in Wonder Man (1945), as a Goldwyn Girl. In 1949, she married Ted Grouya in Paris and embarked on a European career that included stints in the lavish production Gay Paris at the Casino de Paris (1951),[1] and at the Pigalle Club in London. Back in the United States she performed in venues such as the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and in 1953 was selected as one of the nation's 15 best-dressed women by the New York Fashion Academy. One of her last public performances was for Germaine Monteil's cosmetics.[2]
