Yvonne Craog (1937 – 2015). The dark-haired beauty, a native of Taylorville, Ill., began her theatrical career at age 17 as the youngest member of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. She traveled the U.S. and was with the troupe for three years when she was discovered by director John Ford’s agent son Patrick and cast for the lead in the movie “The Young Land” (1959). She then starred opposite Elvis Presley in the films “It Happened at the World’s Fair” (1963) and “Kissin’ Cousins” (1964). The two dated for a spell. Her film résumé also included “The Gene Krupa Story” (1959), “7 Women From Hell” (1961) — with future Joker villain Cesar Romero — “Ski Party” (1965) and “Mars Needs Women” (1967).
