Arlene Dahl


Born - 11 August 1924, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Died - 29 November 2021

Willowy, blue-eyed American redhead of Norwegian ancestry who followed success as an advertising model with a Hollywood career. Here, she progressed from pert and saucy girlfriends, through glamour roles, to her most successful characterisation - a minxish and sometimes unbalanced schemer. Ambitions to be a musical comedy star were never fully realised. Also a beauty columnist (from 1951), she was busy in splashy Hollywood films from the late 1940s: Life With Father (1947), My Wild Irish Rose (1947), The Bride Goes Wild (1948), Scene of the Crime (1949), Ambush (1949), The Outriders (1950), Three Little Words (1950), No Questions Asked (1951), Caribbean Gold (1952), Desert Legion (1953), Sangaree (1953), Bengal Rifles (1954), Woman's World (1955), Slightly Scarlet (1956), Wicked As They Come (1956), Fortune is a Woman/She Played with Fire (1957), Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959), Kisses for My President (1964), Les Poneyettes (1968), Land Raiders (1969), Sotto a Chi Tocca! (1972), A Place to Hide (1988), Night of the Warrior (1990), Broadway: The Golden Age (2003), Broadway: Beyond the Golden Age (2021), her last, and more. Six times married, the first two to actors Lex Barker and Fernando Lamas.
