Lisa Montell was described by IMDB.com as a “Smoulderingly beautiful and a fetching, exotic-eyed vision.” Yeah I’m okay with that description. She was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1933 but he family moved to 5th Avenue in New York prior to the Nazi invasion of Poland.
Montell attending performing arts schools while in New York. The family moved to Lima, Peru in 1953 where Montell was cast in her first film Daughter of the Sun God (1962). The film was so badly shot it took 10 years before it was released in America. While working in other films she was noticed by Hollywood. When her father died Montell and her mother moved to LA. She worked as almost every ethnicity but her own.
In all had around 15 movie roles include World Without End (1956) and She Gods of Shark Reef (1958)but quit acting around 1962 to concentrate on her Bahá’í faith. You can look it up, I had to. It is a monotheistic religion that came out of Persia and respects all other religions. Go figure!
