Weena has passed away.

The beautiful Yvette Mimieux who I grew up with watching is so many wonderful roles passed away on January 18th, 2022 just 10 days after she turned 80.

Yvette started her acting career in such 1950's TV fare as "Yancy Darringer" and "One Step Beyond" as well as "Mr. Lucky".

However it was in 1960 at the young age of 18 that Mimieux made a l;asting impression on many of us reading this blog by her starring role as Weena in "The Time Machine" with Rod Taylor.

She was an innocent beauty in that film and that is always how I saw her from that point on, even in other films such as "Neptune Factor", "Jackson County Jail", "Snowbeast" and "Devil Dog From Hell".

Mimieux made even the not so great films she was in watchable. A great talent, a beautiful woman and one whose lasting memory will always be with me.
