Who Is Yvette Mimieux? Biography, Age

Yvette Mimieux is a retired American actress who was born  January 8, 1942, to a French father named Rene Mimieux and a Mexican mother, Carmen Montemayor in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A where she spent most of her early life. Not much is known about her educational background but it is a common knowledge that in her early years, she developed an interest in modelling and acting but later concentrated on building a career as an actress.

Her Movie Career

The actress made her debut film appearance in the 1960 movie in Platinum High School which was under a contract she signed with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM). However, the movie which launched her career was George Pal’s film version of the 1985 novel written by H. G.

That same year, she was in the popular teen comedy Where the Boys Are which was a box office success. She also made an appearance in the sitcoms Alcoa Presents: One Step Beyond and Mr Lucky. Two years later, MGM featured the actress in the film Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse but it turned out to be a flop. Also, her appearance in the film The Light in the Piazza in which she played a mentally disabled girl was said to be a financial disaster as it incurred a huge amount of loss in spite of the good praises movie critics accorded it. Later that same year, she landed a small role in the film The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm which also turned out to be a commercial disappointment.

In 1963, Yvette appeared in two films titled Diamond Head and Toys in the Attic. She played a small role in the 1964 film Looking for Love and was in two episodes of the sitcom Dr Kildare. The actress also landed a role in the melodrama Joy in the Morning and The Reward. She is also known for the Disney comedy Monkeys, Go Home! released in 1967, the heist film The Caper of the Golden Bulls and the MGM action film Dark of the Sun. The actress also recorded a huge success in the film Three in the Attic and landed a female lead role in the action film released 1970. She also had a lead role in the series The Most Deadly Game which was aired between 1970 to 1971.
