Jeanne Carmen, 77, a 1950s pinup girl, B-movie actress, and trick-shot golfer who hobnobbed with Frank Sinatra and other stars, has died.

Ms. Carmen died Thursday of lymphoma at her Orange County, Calif., home, her son said.

After a dancing role on Broadway, she later went into modeling, gaining a measure of success with a series of cheesecake shots in men's magazines. One gig turned into a new career as a trick golfer. On tour with golfer Jack Redmond, she would perform stunts such as hitting a ball out of a man's mouth.

Ms. Carmen said she later hustled golfers with the Las Vegas mobster Johnny Roselli.

While still in her 20s, she went to Hollywood, where she appeared in low-budget movies.
