In a sprawling, 1920s-era stone-and-wood estate in Beverly Hills, former B-list actress and Playboy pinup Yvette Vickers lay on her floor for up to a year before a neighbor discovered her unrecognizable corpse on April 27, police tell the Los Angeles Times.
Yvette Vickers, an actress best known as the femme fatale in two late 1950s cult horror films “Attack of the 50 Foot Woman” and “Attack of the Giant Leeches,” was found dead April 27 at her home in Los Angeles. She was 82.
Concludes Pyrtle: “This one is worth at least one trod through if only for a few moments of creepiness and Yvette Vickers' legs. Those for whom these simple pleasures are not enough should probably steer clear.”
