Susan Oliver, Slave Girl

There are five Susan Olivers in the IMDb, but I don't know anything about them. I'm talking about the Susan Oliver who did Star Trek (clip), The Disorderly Orderly (1964) with Jerry Lewis, The Green-Eyed Blonde (1957), The Andy Griffith Show, Your Cheatin' Heart (1964), and almost every 1960s television series you can name. For some reason, good quality photos of her are scarce as feathers on a frog.
The Trekkies, who never seem to forget anything, have trading cards and even an action figure for Slave Girl Vina, the character she played on Star Trek TOS (The Original Series). Boy, those dudes really need to get a life. Anyway, to get an idea of the Susan Oliver saturation during the 1960s, check this partial list of her television appearances:
The Twilight Zone
The Untouchables
Naked City
The Alfred Hitchcock Hour
Route 66
77 Sunset Strip
The Fugitive
The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.
I Spy
Peyton Place
T.H.E. Cat
The Wild Wild West
The Invaders
The Big Valley

You'd think there'd be more photos out there somewhere.
