​From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Virginia Leith (October 15, 1925 - November 4, 2019) was an American film and television actress. Leith starred in a few films, with her most productive period coming in the 1950s. Her debut in 1953 was also the first film directed by Stanley Kubrick, a self-financed art house film, Fear and Desire. She signed a contract with 20th Century-Fox in 1954 and had leading roles in films such as On the Threshold of Space, Toward the Unknown, Violent Saturday and opposite Robert Wagner and Joanne Woodward in the crime drama A Kiss Before Dying. She left show business following her 1960 marriage to actor Donald Harron. After her divorce from Harron, in the 1970s Leith resumed her career and appeared in a few films and on television shows, including Starsky and Hutch, Barnaby Jones, and Baretta. She left the screen again in the early 1980s. Her most recognizable role may have been that of a decapitated woman whose head is kept alive in The Brain That Wouldn't Die.
