Liz Renay was a uniquely campy personality, best known today for her role as Muffy St. Jacques in the John Waters film Desperate Living. She was a tabloid sensation in the 50’s and 60’s who went to prison for refusing to rat out her boyfriend, mobster Mickey Cohen. Her autobiographies, My Face for the World to See and My First 1,000 Men, are considered camp classics.
