She represented her home state of New Jersey in a Miss America pageant, placed sixth and (with the scholarship money she won) enrolled at the American Academy of Dramatic Art in New York. She played the plum title roles in prestigious TV productions of "A Star Is Born" and "Jane Eyre", caught the eye of Hollywood and became a 20th Century-Fox contractee in 1952. Freelancing after leaving the studio, she kept busy in feature films (mostly Westerns and horror/sci-fi titles including Batman where she ruined a gown made for Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music) and TV. Known to horror fans for CURSE OF THE UNDEAD in 1959,Crowley has recently turned up at film conventions in Memphis, Baltimore and New Jersey.
