Her nails are too long. Doesn't she need a stylus to push those buttons?

Sweet Smell of Success. The scene where Sidney Falco (Tony Curtis) is entering "21" and a client who's leaving tells him off and fires him. The woman in the fur who's the client's date. It's her. Whoever the cutie was.

Unfortunately they didn't know in 1956 that everything in the world would be based on designs from Star Trek... largely because Star Trek wasn't even a gleam in Gene Roddenberry's eye at the time.
