Carol Lynley

In the "Remember Me" department of In Clover Vintage blog, today's post will feature the actor, Carol Lynley.

Carol was a child model/actress who changed her name from Carol Ann Jones to Carolyn Lee in the 50s. After she appeared on the cover of Life Magazine, Carol discovered that another actress already registered with that name so she changed it again to the homophone, Carol Lynley. She frequently turned up on The Big Valley, Mannix, and later, on The Love Boat.

I don't recall seeing her on the big screen or TV much after Poseidon Adventure in the late 70s. Carol's style was appreciably understated and lovely.
