Biography

Allyn Ann McLerie worked on Broadway throughout the '40s and toured with the American Ballet Theatre from 1950 to 1951. Entering the world of film in 1952, she first reprised her stage role as Amy Spettigue in the film version of "Where's Charley?", and followed with the part of Katie Brown in "Calamity Jane", with Doris Day and Howard Keel. After a temporary retirement McLerie reemerged as a reliable character actress in the mid '60s, turning in a powerful performance in Sydney Pollack's 1969 downer drama "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" She appeared in a number of films with Robert Redford, including "The Way We Were", "Jeremiah Johnson", and the legendary political drama "All the President's Men". Her later career was made up mostly of television roles, notably as Tony Randall's spinsterish assistant on "The Tony Randall Show", as Arthur Carlson's wife on "WKRP in Cincinnati", and as the mother of the title character on "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd". She is married to actor George Gaynes.
