Sometimes, Hollywood is a fickle place. Lots of dreams begin and also die there. A few choice individuals stand out from the crowd and make a name for themselves: Yvette Vickers is one such Hollywood success story.
The daughter of a jazz musician, Charles Vedder, Yvette grew up to be pin-up model (July 1959 playmate), singer and actress.
She had three marriages, no children, and a long-term relationship with Jim Hutton.
In latter years she was reclusive. She was last seen in 2010, but in 2011, a neighbor found her mummified body inside her home. It was believed that she might have been in there for a year before she was discovered and likely cause of death was heart disease.
