Jeanne Carmen
Birth: Aug. 4, 1930

Arkansas, USA
Death: Dec. 20, 2007
Irvine
Orange County
California, USA

Actress, Model. Probably most remembered for her resemblence to Marilyn Monroe, she had a brief career in low budget Hollywood films of the 1950s. Raised in rural Arkansas poverty, Jeanne ran away at 13 and landed in New York where danced in "Burlesque", became a golf trick shot artist, and modeled for men's magazines of the time, posing for nude photos that would be considered tame by the standards of a later era. She appeared in the 1951 television feature "Mike and Buff", was in one "Three Stooges" short, and on the silver screen took part in such forgettable fare as "The Three Outlaws" (1956), the 1957 "War Drums", and 1959's "The Monster of Piedras Blancas". Her turn as a delinquent in the 1957 "Untamed Youth" inspired Eddie Cochran to cover the song "Jeanne, Jeanne, Jeanne" in her honor; she was also to be seen on the small screen a few times in such shows of the day as "Have Gun, Will Travel", "The Millionaire", and "The Dick Powell Theater". Long noted to look like Marilyn Monroe, Jeanne supposedly was a close friend of Marilyn and some of her alleged Mafia associates, though the details were and remain clouded. According to legend when the Blonde Bombshell died in 1962 under circumstances still controversial Jeanne feared for her life. Whatever the truth, she dyed her hair black, moved to Arizona, raised two daughters and a son, became a grandmother, and for many years kept quiet about her time before the camera. Though retired from show business since 1962, Jeanne had a one time comeback as Mrs. Lipschitz in the 2005 comedic horror film "The Naked Monster". She died of lymphoma; a number of her movies have been preserved. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
