Happy Birthday, Yvette Mimieux

Yvette Mimieux is 66 today. I'll always remember her for Where the Boys Are (Key line: "They weren't even Yalies"), a great movie of my late youth. You tough guys will perhaps think of the graphic rape scene in Jackson County Jail, but for me, Where the Boys Are is the picture to remember.

  1. Don't forget THE TIME MACHINE, or that wonderful LIFE magazine cover posing in bikini. I think the LIFE cover publicized a guest role on DR. KILDARE in which she played Kildare's doomed love interest.

    I really like the slides of the E. Howard Hunt covers.

  2. I love that magazine cover. Glad you like the slides.

  3. Strangely enough I too remember her most from the episode of Dr. Kildare where she played a woman with epilepsy. It was unbearably sad. He could sure play a great straight man.

    I'm guessing that shot is from TIME MACHINE.
