I could not find any pictures of her in a bikini or a two-piece. I did find a few promo shots from the 60’s that will have to suffice until someone does. I think she was absolutely stunning and the grand-dame of old Hollywood who was loved by all. She had such grace,.

The comedic actress died at her home in Los Angeles after a battle with Alzheimer’s, according to the Associated Press.

“She was funny and tough and loved life, living it to the fullest,” her manager Craig Bankey said. “She was a great actress, comedian and friend.”
