June McCall - Biography
June McCall (born July 27, 1934 in Los Angeles, United States as Wilhelmina June Palinkas, April 14, 1990) was an American photo and pin-up model. She also appeared as an actress.
She was born as Billie June Palinkas on July 27, 1934 in Los Angeles, California. Her mother's maiden name was McClain. McCall attended Hollywood High School. June started modeling in her mid teens and was a Vargas cover girl in the early 50s. In 1951 McCall won a national contest sponsored by a hosiery company and was a featured performer in Gypsy Rose Lee's all-star show at the Desert Inn in Las Vegas, Nevada in the summer of that same year. June frequently posed for cheesecake pictures for noted glamour photographers Andres de Dienes, Earl Moran, Tom Kelley, and Bernard of Hollywood.
Her signature shot was wearing fishnet stockings that showed off her lovely legs. She wrote about her tumultuous exploits as a pin-up model in the March, 1957 issue of the men's magazine "Modern Man." McCall popped up in often uncredited minor parts in such movies as Two Tickets to Broadway (1951), Battle Cry (1955), Running Wild (1955), Silk Stockings (1957), and the infamous science fiction camp classic Queen of Outer Space (1958).
Moreover, June had guest roles on episodes of the TV programs "Where Were You?" and The Dennis O'Keefe Show (1959). Among the men she dated are Charles Chaplin, Jr. and Jackie Coogan. McCall was married three times. She had a son named Michael Charles with her first husband George Carl "Rusty" Meek II (he was an assistant director). A very sweet and moral woman who was sadly taken advantage of by numerous sleazy folks in show business, June McCall died suddenly at the tragically young age of 55 from a freak kitchen accident in her Los Angeles, California home on April 14, 1990.
