Joi Lansing Biography(Bio):
A buxom blonde model and actress, Lansing was often cast in roles similar to those played by contemporaries Jayne Mansfield and Mamie Van Doren. Joi appeared in skimpy costumes and bikinis; yet, no nudes exist.
Her earliest work was as a model, and she began her film career in 1948. In 1952, she played an uncredited role in the MGM blockbuster Singin' in the Rain. In the opening scene of Touch of Evil by Orson Welles she appeared as Zita, a dancer who dies at the end of the famous first tracking shot.
On television she appeared on The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok, I Love Lucy, and The Beverly Hillbillies in a recurring role. Later movie roles included parts in Marriage on the Rocks (1965) and Hillbillies in a Haunted House (1967).
She also starred in short musical films for the Scopitone video-jukebox system, which anticipated MTV by decades. Some of these films, particularly "The Web of Love", have gone on to become camp classics.
She died of breast cancer in Santa Monica, California on August 7, 1972 at age 43.
