Biography

Beverly Garland never had a showy role in a critically-acclaimed motion picture, nor did she star on a high-brow TV series, but the blonde, lithe actress has managed a career of almost non-stop work since 1950. Over 40 years later, she has remained a frequent TV presence with her warm, inviting smile yet strong, determined demeanor. Garland's career as a working actress has continued long after some of her more celebrated peers have spent time with plastic surgeons and dreaming of a comeback.
