biographyGlamorous Anne Francis acted in more than 60 films and appeared in hundreds of hours of TV programming during her 60-year career. Born in Ossining, New York, on September 16, 1930, Francis began modeling as a child. In the late 1930s and early 1940s, she appeared on early experimental TV broadcasts originating in New York, and she did a lot of radio work during the 1940s. Her first credited film appearance came in the the MGM musical Summer Holiday (1948; with Mickey Rooney). The following year, Francis returned to television, appearing on the series Versatile Varieties during the 1949-1950 season as "Bonny Maid." With a couple more films under her belt, she entered into a contract with 20th Century-Fox; her first starring role for the studio was Elopement (1951; with Clifton Webb). Francis later signed with MGM.
Tab Hunter), and my personal favorite Forbidden Planet (1956; with Walter Pidgeon). Although her film career was going very well, by the late 1950s Francis left MGM and took a hiatus from film work, preferring television guest-starring roles instead. Girl of the Night (1960; with Lloyd Nolan) and The Crowded Sky (1961; with Rhonda Fleming) marked her brief return to movie screens. Following the events of her second marriage and birth of her daughter in the early 1960s, she wouldn't make another film until The Satan Bug (1965; with George Maharis and Dana Andrews). Francis then signed with Warner Bros., acting in the suspense thriller Brainstorm (1965; with Jeffrey Hunter). Also produced by Warner Bros., Anne Francis' detective series Honey West premiered during ABC's fall 1965 season. This half-hour show was spawned from a spring 1965 episode of Burke's Law, in which Francis portrayed sultry private-eye Honey West.
