Debra Paget was the most beatifull american actress. The only one to compete with italian Gina Lollobrigida. Besides, Debra was a good dancer and she had very sympatetic apearances in movies in USA and Europe. A practical proof is that she retired so many decades ago and people look for her in INTERNET as she wre acting now and very successfully.
