Eve Meyer (born Evelyn Eugene Turner; December 13, 1928 March 27, 1977) was an American pin-up model, motion picture actress, and film producer. Much of her work was done in conjunction with sexploitation filmmaker Russ Meyer, to whom she was married from 1952 to 1969. She was killed in the Tenerife airport disaster in 1977, the worst aviation accident in history.

History

Born Eve Turner in Atlanta, Georgia, Turner was a high-profile pin-up model in the 1950s and was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month in June 1955. Her unbilled film debut was in Artists and Models (1955). She worked frequently as a photographic model for Russ Meyer after their marriage, appeared in the film Operation Dames (1959), and took a lead role in Meyer's 1960 exploitation film Eve and the Handyman.

Eve Meyer served as producer, or associate or executive producer, on Meyer's 1960s and early 1970s films, including Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970).
