Mamie Van Doren

Highest Rated: 86% Teacher's Pet (1958)

Lowest Rated: 60% Jet Pilot (1957)

Birthday: Feb 6, 1931

Birthplace: Rowena, South Dakota, USA

Full-figured, hard-edged leading lady of the late 1950s and early 60s who, next to Jayne Mansfield, was one of the best known of the Marilyn Monroe imitators to emerge at that time. Van Doren, however, was not cast primarily in comedies like the more successful Mansfield; instead, she primarily appeared in schlocky "B" melodramas like "Guns, Girls, and Gangsters" (1958), "The Beat Generation" (1959), and "The Navy vs. the Night Monsters" (1966) and exploitation films like "High School Confidential" (1958), "Sex Kittens Go the College" (1960). Van Doren's minor cult status was acknowledged in 1994's "Pulp Fiction," in which a character named "Mamie Van Doren" was played by Lorelei Leslie.
