Biography by Hal Erickson

French leading lady Yvonne Furneaux inaugurated her screen career in England in 1952. A few minor productions aside, Furneaux was well-served in a great many international productions of the 1950s and 1960s. She co-starred with Errol Flynn twice, in the British swashbucklers Master of Ballantrae (1953) and The Warriors (1955). She played Jenny Diver opposite Laurence Olivier's MacHeath in The Beggar's Opera (1953). And she was featured prominently in Fellini's La Dolce Vita (1961), Polanski's Repulsion (1964) and Chabrol's The Champagne Murders (1966). With so illustrious a list of film credits, it is a puzzlement that Yvonne Furneaux agreed to appear in 1983's Frankenstein's Great Aunt Tillie.
