Wow. Just... WOW —
Did you see THIS??
Yvette Vickers mummified body went undiscovered for nearly a year

I absolutely love Yvette Vickers' work! As will ANY fan of B-Movies! She was as close to being a 'regular' on Mystery Science Theater as you can get! Goodbye, Pretty Lady!

More details HERE and HERE.

Oh, and don't get her confused with Beverly Garland, which is easy to do if you're not careful.

UPDATE: I've seen so many quotes from people saying how "sad" it was for to be alone like that. Come on, please! According to what I've read, she was active in the convention circuit and an engaging speaker. All those boxes blocking her doors were full of fan mail. She was NOT forgotten! She obviously CHOSE to be alone. It's a consequence of living alone that people won't be able to know what happens to you.

I'm like that. Plenty of other people are, too. We're NOT "sad."

Yes, in this case, it was a strangely LONG time. That's OUR problem, not hers. So don't be sad for her. The unusual nature of this story serves to remind us of her and remember her all the more vividly. Go watch her movies!

And look at this heartbreakingly beautiful photo!
