From a 2018 DL thread:
Supposedly, on the set of "Joy in the Morning," Yvette Mimieux, who had become friendly with Richard on her two guest appearances on "Dr Kildare," found out that Richard was gay and went around making disparaging comments about his manhood. This created a lot of on-set tension, which leaked out to the gossip columns, printed without naming names. Richard was a "nice guy" who lived quietly and didn't have scandalous sexcapades like Sal Mineo or Anthony Perkins, so the press spared him the "shame" of an exposé.

In Jane Fonda’s autobiography she mentions Yvette as one of her acquaintances during the 60s as they were both married to french guys.
This one stings a bit as I remember her so fondly from “the time machine” which is a film that was shown to me as a child and I became obsessed with for a while. As an adult I watched more of her work such as “toys in the attic”, “diamond head”, “where the boys are” and “ the mercenaries.” While not having the gravitas of more long lasting stars of the era, she was always a welcome presence in film.
I assume she stopped working out of choice.
Quentin tarrentino payed homage to her by naming a character in “inglorious basterds” after her.
A little saddened to hear that rumour about her treatment of chamberlain but who knows the full story. I do remember reading in Linda Evans’s autobiography that she was replaces by mimieux in the movie “the black hole” which caused her to seriously give up acting but instead she got “dynasty” and counted her blessings instead.

I liked her. She rose above her exceptional beauty and the early studio system contract player grooming to take on some interesting roles in the 1970s. She was especially proud of Hit Lady, which she also wrote.
I got the impression she became tired of the struggle for parts, especially as she hit 40. I think that is why she married Howard Ruby and became a Hollywood wife. (Ruby at one time owned the majority of corporate housing in the US via Oakwood.) I’m sure Ruby is devastated, it’s hard for widowers and by all accounts he was devoted to her.
She reteamed with Rod Taylor for a very good action film which is hard to find today. It was very violent and fast-paced and called “Dark of the Sun.”

Apparently not too ridiculous or ethnic, since I never noticed she was anything other than wasp-looking.
"Jayne Mansfield was born Vera Jayne Palmer on April 19, 1933 in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, the only child of Herbert William Palmer (1904–1936), of English and German ancestry, and Vera Jeffrey (née Palmer) Palmer (1903–2000), of English and Cornish descent."

If you want to see how friendly many MANY straight actors/directors/producers/writers were with the gays (closeted and out), you need not look any further than Roddy MacDowell's Malibu home movies on youtube. And this was back in 1965.

You can be friendly and still be pretty homophobic. A lot of people smile in a black persons face and then call them the N word behind their back. I’ve seen it.

There's casual bigotry typical to the era and then there's genuine hatefulness. I doubt most people who willingly interacted often with black or gay people were earnestly hateful.

For an actress who you'd presume most people barely remember, I've been shocked by all the appreciations I've been seeing on my FaceBook scroll. Maybe that just says more about my FaceBook friends, lol.
Anyway, her presence in The Time Machine, Light in the Piazza, Where the Boys Are and that 2 part episode of Dr. Kildare really made a lasting impression on a lot of Baby Boomers. RIP Yvette.

Eldergays, did Yvette and Connie Francis hate each other? Miss Francis always posts touching tributes to her former colleagues who pass away on her facebook page but she hasn't said anything about Yvette.

On the special features of Where The Boys Are there are interviews with Connie Francis and Paula Prentiss, they talk about still seeing Mother Dolores Hart but I got the impression they never were in touch with Yvette.

Does anyone remember the Deb Stars and the Deb Star Ball? It was an entertainment industry event started by Howard Smit to promote one of the motion picture unions and it got very big in the late 1950s and early 1960s. I cracked up at this anecdote about Mimieux and the Deb Stars from one of Tom Lisanti’s books. Something about the term “enraged starlet.” He’s correct: that white stole photo is ubiquitous.

Wow! I don't remember these Deb Star Balls at all and I was certainly paying attention to those things as a gayling. Is there a photo out there of Yvette in her white fox stole?
I recognize a few names from the earlier photo (Jill St. John, Myrna Fahey, Judi Meredith and, of course Tuesday in her Chinese cheongsam) but none besides Raquel in the second one. Who are all those other ladies?

1st row: Beverly Washburn, Raquel Welch, Barbara Parkins, Beverly Stuart 2nd row: Mary Ann Mobley, Laurie Sibbald, Margaret Mason, Donna Loren 3rd row: Tracy McHale Janet Landgard.

Thanks, r168. I recognize Mobley, Washburn and Parkins now. Amazing how Raquel overwhelms them all in that photo, though she did get the best placing.

Janet Landgard had a good part in “the swimmer” I wonder why her career didn’t take off.

Was "The Swimmer" shot years before it was released? It's strange that she had a three year gap so early in her career.

r167 She was a Deb Star of 1959. Group was Carol Douglas, Diane McBain, Yvette Mimieux, Leslie Parrish, Barbara Lawson, Linda Hutchins, Pamela Duncan, Shirley Knight and Sherry Jackson. This photo was definitely from the shoot. They often used makeup in the shoots because Deb Star was a creation of the entertainment industry's hair and makeup guild. I'm surprised there are not more publicity photos of the 1959 class since they appeared on a Bob Hope TV special.

Great shot of Yvette on October 19, 1957 at 16. This is probably the most animated and natural she has ever appeared. Every year, she seemed to look a bit more remote.

Agreed, R185, as her career went on, she became more reserved and remote — and less appealing.
Can’t believe Edy Williams was a Deb Star — have to admit, she looks really pretty in the photo at R184!

If The Time Machine and Light in the Piazza were two of Yvette's first films, she couldn't have gotten any more remote as her career progressed. She was practically a zombie in those two.
