Actress. Born Patricia Paz Maria Medina, to a Spanish father and an English mother, she entered the British cinema during her late teens and marked her film debut with an uncredited part in "Dinner at the Ritz" (1937). Following her marriage to actor Richard Greene, she embarked upon Hollywood and by the late 1940s, she was appearing regularly in such pictures as the swashbucklers "The Three Musketeers" (1948) and "Fortunes of Captain Blood" (1950). Following roles in the comedies "Francis" (1950) and "Abbott and Costello Join the Foreign Legion" (1950), her exotic beauty led her to be cast in the adventure films "The Magic Carpet" (1951) and "Aladdin and His Lamp" (1952). Her more significant roles are perhaps in the Edgar Allan Poe film adaptation of "Phantom of the Rue Morgue" (1954) and the Orson Welles picture "Mr. Arkadin" (1955).
