Biography

Actress and singer Anne Jeffreys, one of of Hollywood's all-time great beauties, entered the industry at a young age--taking voice lessons and working as a model with the John Robert Powers agency. She had intended to pursue a career in stage and opera, but after a performance in "Fun for the Money", she was cast in her first movie role, the 1942 musical "I Married an Angel". She soon after became a Hollywood contract player and in the 1940s appeared in the musical "Step Lively" (with Frank Sinatra) and played Dick Tracy's main squeeze, Tess Trueheart, in "Dick Tracy" and "Dick Tracy vs. Cueball". Jeffreys continued to work on the stage throughout her career, scoring raves in the Cole Porter production "Kiss Me, Kate". Beginning in 1953 she starred in the sitcom "Topper", as a fun-loving ghost opposite husband Robert Sterling (perhaps she was attracted to the show by the involvement of Broadway tunesmith Stephen Sondheim, who wrote close to a dozen episodes). After largely retiring in the 1960s, Jeffreys went on to make numerous TV guest appearances later in her career, including roles on the procedural smash "L.A. Law", the lifeguard melodrama "Baywatch", the sci-fi series "Battlestar Galactica", and, most notably, the soap opera "General Hospital".
