Although big box-office draws, Ann-Margret’s early roles exploited her sex appeal very less, including her portrayal as Karl Malden’s promiscuous wife who makes a seductive act for Steve McQueen in The Cincinnati Kid (1965).

She succeeded to shed her sex-kitten image when Mike Nichols cast her as the tragic Bobbie Templeton in 1971’s Carnal Knowledge, which featured Jack Nicholson. Her supporting role was a breakthrough dramatic performance and established her as a good actress.
