Regal blonde model and singer who was taken up by Hollywood in the early 1940s and kept busy throughout most of the decade (often in westerns) until she quit films for the Broadway Stage, where she enjoyed great success over almost 1000 appearances in the title role of the original run of Kiss Me Kate. Later she tried TV, finding a hit series with the ghost comedy Topper opposite her second husband Robert Sterling, who died in 2006.

Later work includes Boys' Night Out (1962), Panic in the City (1968), Southern Double Cross (1976), Clifford (1994), Richard III (2007) and Sins Expiation (2012), her last.
