Mamie Van Doren is an American actor, model, and singer, best known for the rock ‘n’ roll, juvenile delinquency exploitation movie ‘Untamed Youth.’ She is also known for being one of the first actors to imitate Marilyn Monroe’s appearance. Marilyn, Mamie, and Mansfield (of Jayne Mansfield) were known widely as “The Three M’s.” To accentuate her “sex symbol” image, most of her wardrobe in several movies consisted of sweaters, low-cut blouses, form-fitting dresses, and swimsuits that were too bold for the era. Apart from movies, Doren has made guest appearances on TV shows such as ‘Jukebox Jury,’ ‘What’s My Line,’ and ‘The Bob Cummings Show.’ In 1987, she released her autobiography, ‘Playing the Field,’ which garnered a lot of attention and proved to be her biggest media splash in over 2 decades. She currently handles a website along with her husband, Thomas. The site features merchandise, home-made short films starring herself, contemporary topless and nude photos, and her outspoken political views.
