After she had a role as a model in a Zigfeld Follies film, Brewster's first acting role came in The Barkleys of Broadway (1949).[2]

In 1955, Brewster came down with polio, causing her to spend 29 days in an iron lung and nine months in a wheel chair.[1] In 1957, she acted on stage in Los Angeles, with a starring role in The Darling Darlinis at the Ivar Theater.[3]

During a hiatus in her acting career, Brewster began designing purses, an endeavor that grew into a business that had 10 employees.[1]


Brewster died at 85 in Big Bear Lake, California on February 1, 2013.[4]
