  1. This interesting young lady’s name was Maria Gudmundsdottir, and she was Miss Iceland in 1961. Her image graced fashion pages, pattern books and catalogues (Sears, etc.) for decades. Here is a Getty Images page with a typical pose:

    In 1995, her 300+ page biography, “María, konan bak við goðsögnina” (“Maria, The Woman Behind the Myth”), was authored by Ingólfur Margeirsson. (Don’t know if an English-language version exists.)

    Beginning in her 60s, she did a little bit of acting, racking up a dozen or so credits in the late 1990’s and in the 2000s. (Again, seems none are English-language though.)

    She passed away in December 2021 at the age of 86.
