Gloria Pall with a vintage console TV, 1950s.
Gloria Pall (1927-2012) was an American model, showgirl, film and television actress, author and businesswoman. In 1947 she won a beauty contest that opened the door to work as a model. Pall got her first acting job on television in 1951.
In late 1954 and early 1955, she developed a television show called “Voluptua" for KABC-TV that caused a furor for what was then seen as obscenity. In a 2011 radio interview with author and broadcaster R. H. Greene, Pall reminisced about the Voluptua program, explaining the show’s format, re-enacting character dialogue, and explaining how Christian and PTA groups labelled the character “Corruptua” and pressured KABC to take her off the air.
Cancelled after seven weeks, Voluptua got Pall feature stories in Life and Playboy magazines.
She went on to a successful career as an actress for ten years, primarily in secondary and minor roles. (Wikipedia)
