54 Stunning Photos of American Actress Yvette Mimieux during the 1960s

Statuesque Yvette Mimieux's film career took off in 1960 with two major
parts demonstrating her versatility. In George Pal's version of "The Time
Machine," she compelled attention as Weena, a primitive cavewoman in a an
apocalyptic future. Later that year, her appearance as a happy-go-lucky
teenager on vacation in the smash hit "Where The Boys Are" garnered her
praise as much for her portrayal of a young woman struggling with sexual
assault as for her bikini scenes. For the rest of her career, Mimieux
struggled to find equally compelling parts that would allow her to show off
her dramatic talents as much as her body. While her role as an unjustly
imprisoned woman in 1976's exploitation movie "Jackson County Jail" briefly
helped revive her big screen popularity, from the 1970s up to the time of
her retirement Mimieux concentrated on TV movies, two of which included
parts she wrote or conceived for herself. As a remorseless assassin in
1974's "Hit Lady" and a deranged stalker in 1984's dark drama "Obsessive
Love," Mimieux finally had the chance to demonstrate her range. After her
last appearance in the 1992 TV movie "Lady Boss," Mimieux retired from
acting, turning her attention to real estate.
