Yvette Vickers was a 1959 PLAYBOY Playmate, who later became a B-movie actress in films such as ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT WOMAN and other laughable films such as ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES. This week, her badly decomposed and mummified body was found in her Los Angeles home in nearly unrecognizable condition.
For the July 1959 PLAYBOY, famed big breast connoisseur, Russ Meyer personally photographed the young model who later went on to her new career as a minor film actress. In the 1990’s she embarked on a late career as a jazz singer, releasing a jazz Cd.
In the 1950’s, Vickers was considered to be hot enough that several other men’s magazines besides PLAYBOY also featured her as well, making her a popular one-handed reading material queen in those days when side view breasts with no nipples were the usual norm in most men’s magazines.
Let this serve as a warning to any young women wanting to go into the adult entertainment business – You’ll become famous, make a lot of money, marry wealthy men, but die at the ripe old age of 82 just like anyone else. -Hey, compared to working at WalMart for the minimum wage and marrying some loser who lays of the sofa drinking himself to death, that sounds pretty good.
