Allene Roberts


Born - 1 September 1928, Birmingham, Alabama, USA
Died - 9 May 2019

Winsome, brown-haired, vulnerable-looking, devoutly religious actress and singer who enjoyed a brief career in passive co-star roles during the late 1940s and early 1950s. After an auspicious debut at 18 in The Red House (1947), she was seen, often in 'second leads', in Michael O'Halloran (1948), The Sign of the Ram (1948), Knock on Any Door (1949), Bomba on Panther Island (1949), Union Station (1950), A Wonderful Life (1950), Santa Fe (1951), The Hoodlum (1951), Young Paul Baroni (1952), Thunderbirds (1952) and The Blazing Forest (1952). After losing out on the leading role of Oklahoma! to Shirley Jones, she made a few more TV appearances, and then retired to marriage and what turned out to be four children. Roberts, a widow since 1989, died from Alzheimer's Disease.
