The last photos are of the starlet frolicking on a beach in her bathing suit taken by her friend, the late American photographer, George Barris.

These images, taken on July 13, 1962, show the starlet frolicking in a white bathrobe and a towel on a Santa Monica Beach.

George Barris captured the Los Angeles-born star posing against a white wall in an orange top and trousers.
