Zaftig blonde comic actress Maureen Arthur gained a degree of fame on TV in the early 1960s for her dead-on impersonation of Marilyn Monroe. She was seen in this characterization on variety programs, talk shows and TV commercials until the real Monroe's death in 1962. Thereafter, Maureen trafficked in dumb-broad characters, notably as the "kept" secretary Hedy LaRue in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (1967). A poster from the 1968 spy flick A Man Called Dagger, depicting a bikinied Maureen chained and shackled to leading man Paul Mantee, has become a valuable collector's item in certain fetishist circles. In the early 1980s, Maureen Arthur was a semi-regular on TV's Mork and Mindy, playing a flirtatious middle-aged grade-school student.
