Carole Mathews


Born - 13 September 1920, Montgomery, Illinois, USA
Died - 6 November 2014

Tall, blonde, slow-burning American actress with cynical smile, on the sultry side. A hard worker in films for more than 25 years, she played leads in B pictures and smouldering other women in 'A's. Born Jean Deifel (and a beauty contest winner at 18), she was also a dancer and torchy singer, but got little chance to do either in her near 100-film catalogue, including Here's to Romance (1935), Romance in the Dark (1938), Girl from Avenue A (1940), Footlight Serenade (1942), Girl in the Case (1944), The Missing Juror (1944), I Love a Mystery (1945), Stars Over Texas (1946), Sealed Verdict (1948), Massacre River (1949), The Great Gatsby (1949), Cry Murder (1950), The Man with My Face (1951), Red Snow (1952), Shark River (1953), Port of Hell (1954), Betrayed Women (1955), Treasure of Ruby Hills (1955), Swamp Women (1956), Strange Awakening (1958), 13 Fighting Men (1960) and Tender is the Night (1961). Her last appearance was in the TV movie Fame in 1978. She later bred horses and goats and ran a travel agency until retiring in 1987.
