  • Peaches-and-cream blonde actress Leslie Parrish entered films in 1955, appearing under her own name, Marjorie Hellen, until 1959. Leslie's two best film roles relied on equal parts acting ability and dazzling beauty: hillbilly heroine Daisy Mae in Li'l Abner (1959), and unwitting political pawn Jocie Jordan in The Manchurian Candidate (1962). Gradually easing out of acting in the 1970s, Leslie kept apace of show business as a production assistant. Leslie Parrish is married to Jonathan Livingston Seagull-author Richard Bach, who "immortalized" his wife by writing her into two of his novels as a character.
