 Model Citizen - Suzy Parker (Metro Times Detroit)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Unlike her publicly mute confreres — of models, Parker once remarked, "You never met a skinnier, meaner bunch of people" — she was chatty, expansive, and outspoken on politics, culture, and social mores.
(A playful dissembler, Parker invented histories, so records often state that she was born in Texas and attended high school in Florida.) Her older sister, Dorian Leigh, already a successful cover girl, introduced Parker, only 15, to modeling doyenne Ford, who declared her too tall at 5-foot-9 but offered her contract anyway.
But Parker never seemed particularly at ease away from the still camera, and she abandoned acting altogether by 1966, having married Dillman three years earlier; the pair settled in Montecito, Calif., near Santa Barbara, in 1968, where they raised a family.
