Born in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, Yvette majored in picture and
theatre arts at UCLA for three years. On a trip to New York in the
mid-fifties she was cast as the White Rain Girl in commercials. She
returned to the West Coast, working in various TV shows, until she
debuted in her first movie, _Short Cut to Hell_ (1957), James
Cagney's first directing effort. After doing a half dozen more
movies through the end of the 50's, the blonde, blue-eyed actress
appeared once in 1963 in _Hud_, in 1971 in _What's the Matter with
Helen?_, and in 1975 in the TV movie _The Dead Don't Die_.
