Yvette Vickers: In Her
Own Words, as told to
John O'Dowd
When Yvette, a New York model
for White Rain shampoo, first
appeared in Sunset Boulevard
(1950), she could not have
imagined that her own death
would be as bizarre as Norma
Desmond's gigolo, Joe.
After roles in Short Cut to Hell
(1957) and Reform School Girl
(1957), Yvette's fate cast her into
dubious signature roles in Attack
of the 50 Foot Woman (1958)
and Attack of the Giant Leeches
Forgotten by nearly everyone, she was last seen alive in 2010. In 2011, her mummified body
was discovered in her home, and forensic scientists determined that she had been dead for as
long as a year from heart disease.
John O'Dowd now reveals the secret recordings she made in her last years that reveal in her
own voice the truth about her life and career. Hear her retell behind-the-scenes stories of the
show business that brushed her aside, her dashed dreams, and her realized hopes. Her voice,
warm-hearted and still resonating with humor, tells the inside story no one heard before her
grisly death.
