Diane Webber

Got another DVD today, The Mermaids of Tiburon (1962), mostly because I love mermaids.  It wasn't very good at all.  However, the star mermaid (one of the few with a fish tail - I thought all mermaids had fish tails...?) was played by Diane Webber.  In addition to being a leading figure model of the era, she was also a belly dancer and founded the Perfumes of Araby troupe.  They danced at many a Renaissance Pleasure Fair in the 70's.  I wonder if there is any extant video of her dancing?  Sadly, she passed away in 2008.

PS:  The heavy in Mermaids is played by the fantabulous Timothy Carey, whom I would marry in five seconds.
