Yvonne De Carlo

The actress best known for starring in numerous 1940's Technicolor costume adventures and Westerns, Canadian-born Yvonne DeCarlo has died at age 84.

Although she had an extensive movie and TV career and a brief singing career (I didn't know that) she achieved pop culture immortality portraying Lily Munster on The Munsters television series in the mid '60's.

For a tribute to and profile of the sultry actress' more than interesting break into show biz and rise to stardom, as well as how and why she became Lily Munster, check out Alexandra's journal. Thanks, Alex.
