An exotic beauty with a perfect complexion, she made a debut in 1939 with a series of decorative roles in the '40s and '50s as the virginal heroine or faithful young wife, gradually shifting to sultry temptress. Her films include the melodramas "Blood and Sand," 1941, "The Loves of Edgar Allen Poe," 1942, and "Forever Amber," 1947. After 1957 she made only one film.
