Kiki The Cossack

Coming to a town near you! A giant movie lobby card for Billy Wilder’s “Irma La Douce” in 1963. At the Modernism Show Palm Springs 2017 yesterday in the display of Early California Antiques Gallery.

From the gallery website… Kiki was actress Grace Lee Whitney. She started out as a singer with Billie Holiday, Buddy Rich, Spike Jones and Fred Waring. However “Kiki” later became Yeoman Janice Rand in the original “Star Trek” television series and four of the “Star Trek” motion pictures. I sure remember her very well from all of those Star Treks. But “Kiki The Cossack” has it beat by a long way for me!

Kiki, The Cossack
