Fille de joie

Well, to be boringly honest, she's not actually a real doxie - just an extra on the set of Irma la Douce. Still, you have to love the look.

Update: Gentle readers have pointed out that, far from being an extra, this is in fact another of the Babes of Trek, Miss Grace Lee Whitney, playing Kiki the Cossack. Here she is in another galaxy:

Frankly, I think I like her better in her working-the-waterfronts guise. She's a little too Abba impersonator here...


  1. her name will come to me later...

  2. Hooray!

    It's Grace Lee Whitney (Yeoman Rand from Star Trek) doing her best Barbara Harris imitation.

  3. and she's no extra - she's Kiki the Cossack.

    She and Joan Shawlee (Irma la Douce doxie Amazon Annie) were also both in Billy Wilder's "Some Like It Hot" as Sweet Sue (Shawlee) and band member Rosella (Whitney).

  4. i remember them now in that movie...

  5. don't you remember that woven hairdo she had on Star Trek?
