Cult queen Beverly Garland won over sci-fi fans' hearts with her work in over 20 films, many of which were B-movies. Garland played everything from a lady sheriff in Gunslinger to a trashy convict in one of Corman's first directing projects, Swamp Women, before going on to a prolific career on the small screen. Her success was most likely due to her gorgeous face and curvy body that even those scaly mitts in the picture above couldn't resist.
