Francine York was an American actress and model. York worked as a showgirl in her early career at Bimbo's nightclub in San Francisco. York's first screen role was in Robert Clarke's Hollywood exploitation film Secret File Hollywood shot in 1960 but not distributed until 1962. Her big break came when Jerry Lewis cast her in It's Only Money, in which she played a tantalizing sexpot, a role which brought her much publicity. York's television roles included portraying Amanda Agnew on It Takes a Thief, Wendy Wendkoski in Slattery's People, and Kate Landis in The Courtship of Eddie's Father. York was memorable as the willowy Lydia Limpet, the henchwoman of The Bookworm (Roddy McDowall), in a first-season installment of ABC’s Batman in 1966. She uses a boring book to lure Robin to sleep and gets to ride in the Batmobile.

Fun Fact

York never married. She once said, “Like Cinderella, I always wanted to marry the handsome prince…but they don’t make glass slippers in size ten!”
