This is one of the saddest, and certainly strangest, things I’ve come across since this blog started.
Yvette Vickers, seen above with Rory Calhoun in The Saga Of Hemp Brown (1958), was found dead in her Benedict Canyon home. She’d been dead for months. The Los Angeles Times article can be found here.
She was known for her appearances in Playboy and B pictures like Attack Of The Giant Leeches (1959). She also had a great part in Hud (1963).
Thanks, and kudos, to Stephen Bowie who tracked down the real year Miss Vickers was born.
