Actresses: Evelyn West - The Gal WIth The $50,000 Treasure Chest

Evelyn WestEvelyn West, born 1921 in Southern Kentucky and died in Hollywood Florida in 2004, she was a rare mixture of brunette dynamite and classy bombshell. Eve was a petite knock-out at 5' 4" with a 39 1/2" rack that Lloyd's of London briefly insured for $50,000 in the 1950's.

A burlesque dancer (mostly reads as stripper) turned actress, her credits ranged from popular men's magazines, such as Fever ("Where there's a fire there's a filly!") and Playboy in August of 1954. She also appeared in photo journals and classic beaver/stag loops that played from the late 1940's to 1950's.
