Fran Jeffries


Born - 18 March 1937, San Jose, California, USA
Died - 15 December 2016

Dark-haired, elfin, lithe American singer and dancer with enviable figure and plaintively tuneful voice, hugely successful in nightspot and cabaret work, especially in combination with her second (of four) husband, crooner Dick Haymes. Films only used her in speciality spots and exotic cameos: The Buccaneer (1958), The Pink Panther (1963), Sex and the Single Girl (1964), Harem Holiday/Harum Scarum (1965), The Party (1967) and A Talent for Loving (1969), her last. Born Frances Makris, she died from multiple myeloma. The third of her quartet of husbands (all divorced) was director Richard Quine.
