GRACIOUS GLAMOUR GIRL

Lovely Inga Neilsen was dubbed on the Internet as “A Nordic Goddess Supreme, the World’s Greatest Glamazon” and the statuesque beauty clearly deserves the title. Standing 6-foot-3 in heels, this striking blue-eyed blonde had curves galore and was built to be ogled on the big screen in ’60s spy spoofs (including In Like Flint as the Head Amazonian guard who leads her compatriots in Operation Smooch) and musical extravaganzas (including A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum as slave Zero Mostel’s love interest the mute Gymnasia and Funny Girl as the scintillating Winter Bride, the most dazzling of Ziegfeld Girls). Her body was not all Inga offered as she was an accomplished singer and had comedic talent to hold her own opposite some of the decades top comedians in numerous TV variety shows.

I interviewed Inga for my book Glamour Girls of Sixties Hollywood. Below are clips from a local Southern California talk show called Jodie in Malibu that Inga appeared on. I was taken aback in clip two where Inga pushed my book and said kind words about me. What a nice classy woman.

    A lot of the 'pretty faces' from the 60s were multi-talented (act/sing/dance). I didn't know Inga belonged to that group too. Thanks for posting.
