Lesley Ann Warren
A greatly underutilized talent in features, this stage-trained actress has shone in numerous TV-movies, miniseries and music-oriented specials. America first discovered Lesley Ann Warren as a fresh-faced ingenue; she was a radiant "Cinderella" (CBS, 1966) in the now classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical TV special. The next year, Warren made her feature debut in "The Happiest Millionaire," a Disney musical starring Fred MacMurray. She followed up with another Disney songfest, "The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band" (1968), in which she was the love interest of John Davidson. Warren then turned her attention to the small screen, appearing in numerous TV-movies, busted pilots, miniseries and guest spots. Whereas feature assignments were few and far between--only three between 1968 and 1982--TV realized Warren's potential as a lead.
