This is the fourth in a series of short tribute videos recalling the life and career of actress Inger Stevens. An engaging conversationalist, Inger was well-read and showed an inquisitiveness about the world around her throughout her life. By nature, she was charming, sensitive to others, and at times refreshingly frank with her candor and honesty. With her energy, optimism and seemingly ever present smile, it is understandable how Inger quickly acquired the nickname "Miss Sunshine" in the Hollywood community.

It was only in the aftermath of her passing did many of those around her and her fans come to realize the inner struggles and turmoil in Inger's life. The constant battle to maintain her single woman image while keeping her marriage to Ike Jones private placed an overwhelming strain on her and on the marriage itself. In hindsight, there is a poignancy and sense of irony when reading Inger's comments today: in many instances, she is speaking truthfully about herself, but with a noticeable sense of wishful thinking, the listener having to read between the lines to sense her true angst. Nevertheless, she lived her life leading with her heart, always placing her concern for others ahead of her own needs. That quality, among others, makes her appeal timeless.

Rather than show all stills and scenes from her films, this video contains a number of candid photos of Inger. Many were taken by her friends at impromptu yet opportune times, showing a unique view of Inger as simply "Inger the person, not the actress."

In the interest of continuity, the music is again Carly Comando's "Cordelia's Lullaby" from the album "Cordelia."
