Joyce Jameson was a more talented actress than she got credit for. She was known for her ability to play a ditzy, breathy blonde. Her Marilyn Monroe impression made her an in-demand actress across TV, movies, and the stage. But playing dumb requires more smarts than people realize.

Jameson was a clever, talented actress. Her best friend and boyfriend— Man from U.N.C.L.E. star Robert Vaughn—  said she could have been as big as Carol Burnett if people just realized how witty and funny she was. Tragically her career was cut short with her death in 1987, but we can still enjoy her performances all over classic TV.

Can you place Jameson in the correct show?

6 of 8. Better than I thought. The backgrounds and co-stars helped decide with most of the questions.

4/8. She was also in The Man From UNCLE episode, "The Dippy Blonde Affair".
And the movie Comedy of Horror.

"You got 6 out of 8. What a great score! We'd like to shake your hand."

Playing a ditzy blonde type without quickly annoying the audience is a difficult thing to do.
She was expert at showing there was a person underneath the shallow exterior, beyond the
camp. As when she appeared on McHales Navy, there was a palpable warmth between her and
McHale, even if she did swipe his wallet at the end.
I can't think of any actress since who is anywhere as good as she was in such roles.

I know they were going with TV shows, but she was also in an Elvis movie, "Frankie and Johnny" (1966). She played a ditzy, drunken gambler.

Other than being what I thought was an extremely attractive woman, Joyce is now in the ground after killing herself

She also played “Rose”, the saloon girl at the end of Outlaw Josey Wales.

I didn't realize that was her in the Outlaw Josey Wales.
However it always surprised me that Clint Eastwood had anything to do with it's author,
much less enrich rich him starring in a movie based on his book.
As he was a high ranking imperial wizard in the KKK and wrote Wallace's "Segregation Now,
Segregation Forever" speech. I would hope Eastwood wasn't aware of the connection,
in fact I'd bet he wasn't, he's not that type of person.
Yes, Carter was a Devoted Democrat.
