Merry Anders


Born - 22 May 1932, Chicago, Illinois, USA
Died - 28 October 2012

Photogenic, green-eyed blonde with pleasing, slow-burning appeal who clung tenaciously to her career over a 20-year period, starring in some interesting 'B' features along the way. Born Mary Anderson (there was another actress of that name), she was signed (and wasted) by 20th Century-Fox, for whom she played bits in several films: Golden Girl (1951), Belles on Their Toes (1952), Wait 'Til the Sun Shines, Nellie (1952), How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) and Three Coins in the Fountain (1954). Freelancing, she began to fare better: Phffft! (1954), All That Heaven Allows (1955), Desk Set/His Other Woman (1956), The Dalton Girls (1957, her first leading role), Escape from San Quentin (1957), Violent Road (1958), Five Bold Women (1959), The Walking Target (1960), Young Jesse James (1960), The Gambler Wore a Gun (1961), 20,000 Eyes (1961), Beauty and the Beast (1962), House of the Damned (1963), The Time Travelers (1964), The Quick Gun (1964), Women of the Prehistoric Planet (1965), Flight of the Cougar (1967), Airport (1969) and Legacy of Blood (1971), her last.
