Life Story of Carol Lynley

Blond, blue-eyed and with an attractively feline appeal, Carol Lynley began her professional career as Carolyn Lee. She learned ballet at the age of seven, became a successful child model at the age of ten (eventually working for the Sears & Roebuck department store in New York) and got her face nationally recognised as 'the Coca-Cola Girl'.

Carol was born Carole Ann Jones in New York City, to Frances Fuller (Felch), from New England, and Cyril Roland Jones, who was an Irish immigrant. Trying to branch out into acting early on, Carol discovered that another individual by that name (born seven years earlier) was already on the books of Actors' Equity, thus Carolyn changed her moniker by fusing the 'lyn' and the 'lee' to create 'Lynley'. From the age of fifteen she appeared on Broadway, played juvenile roles in early anthology television and was featured on the cover of Life Magazine in April 1957. Her first important film roles came in decidedly wholesome fare, beginning with The Light in the Forest (1958) for Walt Disney Productions in which she played the indentured servant girl Shenandoe. It was a promising start. A New York Times reviewer praised her performance...

"Carolyn Lee" was her modeling name -- a name that was already registered with Actors' Equity, so she changed it to use the homophone "Carol Lynley".

She was featured on the April 22, 1957, cover of LIFE Magazine. Walt Disney saw her photo and article and decided to cast her in his release The Light in the Forest (1958). It was Carol's debut (she received an "and introducing" credit in the opening titles), but it was also her swan song for Disney's studio. Opposite James MacArthur, a Broadway actor, both gave convincing performances, receiving mixed critical reaction, mostly because of the entrenched polarized "pro" and "anti" Disney factions.

Lynley owned the boots and pendant she wears in The Poseidon Adventure (1972). She complained during production that the boots were shrinking due to constant immersion in water, making them extremely uncomfortable.

Although in later years she claimed to have sung "The Morning After" in The Poseidon Adventure (1972), her voice was in fact dubbed by studio singer Renée Armand.

Was close friends with actor/dancer Fred Astaire. In the late 1970s, it was much rumored (over a period of several years) in the press that they might even marry; however, in June 1980, the then 81-year old Astaire instead wed Robyn Smith, who is precisely (two years, 183 days in leap years of both her birth year of 1944 and wedding year of 1980) two and one half years younger than Carol. Carol is quoted extensively in the book "Fred Astaire: His Friends Talk" (1988), by Sarah Giles.

With her friend, entertainment reporter Nelson Aspen, Lynley appeared in several interstitial showbiz segments covering a variety of topics. For Australia's #1 morning show Sunrise (2000), she reflected on the remake of The Poseidon Adventure (1972). On TV Guide Television (1999), she discussed her long career in television, film and on Broadway. For "New with Nelson", she revealed some of her Oscar picks for that year and named her all-time favorite Oscar winner as Frank Sinatra.

At 12 she would pose in modeling work all day the dash to the theatre to perform in 'The Anniversary Waltz'. She attracted a lot of attention om Broadway with her roles in 'The Potting Shed' and 'Blur Denim',.
