Roberta Haynes


Born - 19 April 1927, Wichita Falls, Texas, USA
Died - 4 April 2019

Sultry, raven-haired, olive-skinned American actress who, despite being born in Texas and raised in Canada, found herself cast as Mexican girls or South Sea Island maidens. It was in the latter vein that she got her first big break in a film opposite Gary Cooper. But, despite much publicity, her career did not progress upwards. She had begun with an unbilled 'bit' in Knock On Any Door (1949), but quickly moved into showier roles: We Were Strangers (1949), The Fighter (1952), Return to Paradise (1953), Gun Fury (1953), The Nebraskan (1954), Hotel du Rendez-Vous (1955), Hell Ship Mutiny (1957). After a decade appearing in television series, she began combining acting with production and work as a dialogue coach: Point Blank (1967), The Adventurers (1970), Valdez is Coming (1971), Pete 'n' Tillie (1972), The Rules of Marriage (1982), Police Academy 6: City Under Siege (1989) and The Copper Scroll of Mary Magdalene (2004), her last. Born Roberta Schack, she was three times married and divorced.
