Along with Juliet Prowse and Shirley MacLaine, I was one of the "other dancers" who performed the cancan for Nikita Khrushchev and his wife Nina Petrovna when they visited our set at 20th Century Fox. Juliet's obituary (Sept. 15) relates that after Premier Khrushchev spoke to his wife, he later "denounced the dance as immoral." The following transpired between Mrs. Khrushchev and me: I had learned how to say "Hello--How are you?" in Russian. After our performance dozens of people flocked around the premier.

Juliet Prowse, the dancer and actress who high-kicked her way to fame by performing a saucy cancan before startled Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, died Saturday. She was 59. She died at her Holmby Hills home after losing a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer, according to her spokeswoman, Marcia Groff. Prowse was an auburn-haired beauty who was once linked romantically to singers Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra--at the same time.

Actress and dancer Juliet Prowse was bitten by a leopard Monday while rehearsing for the annual "Circus of the Stars" television special. Prowse, 51, required five stitches to close neck wounds she suffered in the 9 a.m. attack that occurred while she was training with two leopards and three panthers, according to Dan Jenkins, spokesman for "Circus of the Stars." Jenkins said one of the wounds came dangerously close to severing the vital carotid artery, which supplies blood to the brain.
