Previous IQs:

Were you a noted Fifties actress with a three-letter-long last name? - Yes, Doris Day
Did you play a pious woman and a whore in the same movie? - Faye Dunaway, in Little Big Man
Did you star in the TV show Police Woman? - Yes, Angie Dickinson

Can't figure out who this is. I yield my last DQ to whoever would like to ask it.
