Hey pallies, likes wow pallies, likes I never ever expected to learn details 'bout our Dino's co-star Beverly Adams who played Miss Lovey Kravezit in the first three Matt Helm capers. (Note that this article sez she was only in the first two.) But, here for our Dinoedification is a cool piece of prose on the life and times of Miss Adams.
Taken from the cool blog "Leo the Listmaker's Pop Culture Palace", where our host Leo diggs makin' lists (clicks on tagg of this Dinogram to goes there) comes this post on "The Top Stars of Tomorrow of 1966. Well pallies our Lovey happens to chime in at numero 8. Enjoys learnin' a few on MIss Beverly and a wee clip from her openin' sequence with our Dino in "The Silencers" where she and our great man towel off together....

And for you viewin' pleasure, our Dino and Miss Lovey in a very steamy situation from "The Ambushers"...... Dinodiggin', DMP
The Top Stars of Tomorrow of 1966
In 1941, the same group that produced the “top box office stars” list started polling with the question, “who are the individuals most likely to achieve major stardom?”. The results were generally an interesting mix of those who would become long term stars and those whose fame only lasted for a short time. These were the choices of 1966.
8. Beverly Adams
Beverly Adams’ first credit was an episode of “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet” in 1963. She continued to get small roles in movies and television, but made her first big splash in 1965 with her appearance in “How to Stuff a Wild Bikini” with Annette Funicello. She appeared in four films in 1966 including two films as Lovey Kravezit, Dean Martin’s secretary in the Matt Helm series. She also married famous hair stylist Vidal Sassoon in 1966 and soon retired from acting to raise her children.
