About Anne Francis (1930 – 2011)

Anne Francis was born on September 16, 1930, in Ossining, New York. She began her career at age 6 when she became a John Robert Powers model. By age 11, she had already appeared on several radio soaps in New York. This bread on Radio Soaps would land Anne her first role on Broadway in Lady in the Dark.

She died on January 2, 2011, in Santa Barbara, at age 80.

Although first contracted with MGM after WWII, her career didn't seem to be heading in the right direction. Eventually she would head back to New York and land a contract with Fox, whose casting would land Anne the trademark of the blonde ingenue. She would make her most notable mark on the industry in the 1950's starring alongside stars like Spencer Tracy and Sidney Poitier in the films Bad Day at Black Rock(1955) and Blackboard Jungle(1955), respectively.

Anne sued Columbia Studios after the 1968 mega-musical film, Funny Girl, was released. Ann Francis claimed that her role was cut to shreds, with most of it left on the editing floor.

Anne first married Bamlett Price Jr., in 1952. They were divorced three years later. Anne would remarry Dr. Robert Abeloff, in 1960. This marriage would end in divorce as well, four years later. She had one child with Dr. Abeloff.
