About Mamie Van Doren

Mamie Van Doren, born Joan Lucille Olander (February 6, 1931), is an American actress, model, singer and sex symbol that is known for being one of the first actresses to imitate or 'clone' the look of Marilyn Monroe. Van Doren is perhaps best remembered for bringing the rock 'n' roll-style of music alive in the B-musical Untamed Youth (1957), and for many other films of this exotic nature. Van Doren was born Joan Lucille Olander in Rowena, South Dakota, the daughter of Warner Carl Olander (March 30, 1908--June 4, 1992) and Lucille Harriet Bennett (January 21, 1912--August 27, 1995). She is of three-quarters Swedish ancestry; the remainder is mixed English and German. Her mother named her after Joan Crawford.
