Early life and career
Mimieux was born in Los Angeles County, California, United States, to her French father René Mimieux and Mexican mother Maria Montemayor. She has at least two siblings, a sister, Gloria, and a brother.
Talent manager Jim Byron suggested she become an actress.
Mimieux's first acting appearances were in episodes of the television shows Yancy Derringer and One Step Beyond.
Mimieux's first feature was George Pal's film version of H. G. Wells's 1895 novel The Time Machine (1960) starring Rod Taylor, in which she played the character Weena. It was made for MGM, which put her under long-term contract.
Mimieux appeared in Platinum High School (1960), produced by Albert Zugsmith for MGM, which was released before The Time Machine.
Mimieux guest-starred in an episode of Mr Lucky, then was one of several leads in the highly popular teen comedy Where the Boys Are (1960).
MGM put Mimieux in the ingenue role in Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1961), an expensive flop. Arthur Freed wanted to team her and George Hamilton in a remake of The Clock, but it was not made.
Mimieux had a central role in Light in the Piazza (1962) with Olivia de Havilland and George Hamilton, playing a mentally disabled girl. The film lost money but was well regarded critically. She later said: "I suppose I have a soulful quality. I was often cast as a wounded person, the 'sensitive' role."
Mimieux was slated for a role in A Summer Affair at MGM, but it was not made.
Mimieux had a small part in Pal's The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm (1963), another commercial disappointment. Also later that year, she appeared in Diamond Head (1963) for Columbia, billed second to Charlton Heston.
Mimieux went to United Artists for Toys in the Attic, based on the play by Lillian Hellman and co-starring Dean Martin.
While at MGM, Mimieux guest-starred on two episodes of Dr. Kildare alongside Richard Chamberlain. She played a surfer suffering from epilepsy, a performance that was much acclaimed. In her appearance she was the first person on American television to show her navel.
Mimieux made a cameo as herself in Looking for Love (1964) starring Connie Francis and played Richard Chamberlain's love interest in Joy in the Morning (1965), a melodrama.
Mimieux was in a Western with Max von Sydow at Fox, The Reward (1965); the Disney comedy Monkeys, Go Home! (1967); and a heist film The Caper of the Golden Bulls (1967).
Mimieux did The Desperate Hours (1967) for TV and was reunited with Rod Taylor in the MGM action movie Dark of the Sun (1968). In 1968 she narrated a classical music concert at the Hollywood Bowl.
Mimieux was top-billed in Three in the Attic (1969) a hit for AIP.
Mimieux appeared in the critically acclaimed movie The Picasso Summer (1969) alongside Albert Finney.
Mimieux was the female lead in The Delta Factor (1970), an action film.
Mimieux had one of the leads in The Most Deadly Game (1970–1971), a short-lived TV series from Aaron Spelling. She replaced Inger Stevens, who had been slated to star, but who died of suicide one month before production began. Around this time Mimieux had a business selling Haitian products and studied archeology; she would travel several months of each year.
In 1971, after making the TV movies Death Takes a Holiday (1971) and Black Noon (1971), Mimieux sued her agent for not providing her with movie work despite having taken her money.
Mimieux was an air hostess in MGM's Skyjacked (1972), starring Heston and was in the Fox science-fiction film The Neptune Factor (1973).
By the early 1970s, Mimieux was unhappy with the roles offered to female actors: "The women they write are all one dimensional. They have no complexity in their lives. It's all surface. There's nothing to play. They're either sex objects or vanilla pudding."
Mimieux had been writing for several years prior to this film, mostly journalism and short stories. She had the idea for a story about a Pirandello-like theme: "...the study of a woman, the difference between what she appears to be and what she is: appearance vs reality... the more I wanted to play her. Here was the kind of nifty, multifaceted part I'd been looking for. So instead of a short story, I wrote it as a film."
Mimieux wrote a thriller, which she took to producers Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg, who then produced it for ABC as a television film. It aired as Hit Lady (1974).
Mimieux starred in The Legend of Valentino (1975), in which she played Rudolph Valentino's second wife, Natacha Rambova. Also in 1975, she made the Canadian thriller Journey into Fear.
In 1976, Mimieux made a pilot for a TV sitcom based on Bell, Book and Candle, but it was not picked up.
Later movies
Mimieux was a falsely imprisoned woman victimized by a sadistic guard in the film Jackson County Jail (1976) with Tommy Lee Jones for New World Pictures, which was a box-office hit.
Mimieux was in some horror-oriented TV movies, Snowbeast (1977), Devil Dog: The Hound of Hell (1978), and Disaster on the Coastliner (1979). She also did the TV movies Ransom for Alice! (1977) and Outside Chance (1978).
Later, Mimieux co-starred in the first PG-rated Walt Disney Productions feature, The Black Hole (1979). She had the lead in Circle of Power (1981).
Mimieux was in the TV movie Forbidden Love (1982) and Night Partners (1983) and guest-starred on The Love Boat and Lime Street.
Mimieux made Obsessive Love (1984), a television film about a female stalker which she co-wrote and co-produced: "There are few enough films going these days, and there are three or four women who are offered all the good parts. Of course I could play a lot of awful parts that are too depressing to contemplate.... is not the love affair I have with film, but television can be a playground for interesting ideas. I love wild, baroque, slightly excessive theatrical ideas, and because television needs so much material, there's a chance to get some of those odd ideas done."
Mimieux had the lead in Berrenger's (1985), a short-lived TV series and had a support role in the TV movie The Fifth Missile (1986).
Mimieux guest-starred in a TV movie Perry Mason: The Case of the Desperate Deception (1990). Her last film was Lady Boss (1992).
Mimieux retired from acting in 1992.
Personal life
Mimieux married Evan Harland Engber on December 19, 1959, but kept the marriage secret for almost two years.
Mimieux was married to film director Stanley Donen from 1972 until their divorce in 1985. Mimieux later married Howard F. Ruby, chairman emeritus and founder of Oakwood Worldwide.
