Celebrating upcoming birthdays are Starlets Arlene Martel, Maureen Arthur, and Melody Patterson. Arlene was a busy actress who was all over the small screen during the Swinging Sixties playing a variety of roles including Spock’s intended Vulcan wife on Star Trek and a Russian spy on The Monkees. Check out a clip on YouTube.

Maureen is best known for her role as the busty gold digger Heddy LaRue in How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying. She also sang the title tune and co-starred in the low-budget James Bond rip-off, A Man Called Dagger. Check out a tribute on YouTube. Maureen will be featured in my upcoming book, Pinups in Sixties Hollywood.

Finally Melody (pictured) is warmly remembered for playing shapely cowgirl Wrangler Jane on the comedy series, F Troop.
