That's one of the least vast waists I've ever seen.

Too bad she couldn't trademark her persona. A long list of scream queens (Elvira, Lily Munster, Morticia Addams, to name a few) would have owed her some serious royalties.

Spent many a wasted evening with this woman and her sultry ways, beguiling eyebrows and plunging neckline. Ah youth!
