Elke Sommer is a German-born actress who became a popular 'sex symbol' in movies of the 1950s and 1960s. She was featured in movies of all genres, such as "Don't Bother to Knock" (1962), "A Shot in the Dark" (1964), "The Money Trap" (1965), and "The Oscar" (1966). She also guest starred on several tv shows in the 1970s and 1980s.
While she still acts on occasion, she has concentrated on painting in recent years. She has held several one-woman art shows, featuring her works.
In 1982 I sent this photo to Ms. Sommer, and she returned it within two weeks.
