This is to request information concerning Maila Nurmi for biographical research purposes.

Miss Nurmi was best known for the Vampira character she developed for her 1954 Los Angeles- based television show. She appeared as a comedienne on network television during that period and in several low-budget films before disappearing from the public eye in the early 1960s. Prior to her work in Hollywood, Nurmi appeared in two Mike Todd shows in New York.

Anyone with knowledge of Nurmi's life and work on either coast, please contact me at the following address.
