Too often thought of in the 1960s as a mere "sex kitten," Ann-Margret's career outlived her hip-swiveling breakout and over the next four decades proved her tremendous talent and staying power as a singer, dancer and fine dramatic actress. She began her career on the cabaret stage, which she revisited throughout her life as a Las Vegas entertainer and TV variety show host. Her sizzling style was first showcased in the Elvis vehicle "Viva Las Vegas" (1964) as well as "Bye Bye Birdie" (1963); both of which showcased her intriguing beauty, sultry voice and high energy dancing. In the 1970s, she earned respect as a dramatic actress with her Oscar-nominated role in Mike Nichols' "Carnal Knowledge" (1971) and her Golden Globe-winning performance in the rock opera, "Tommy" (1975). The triple-threat's prolific era of made-for-TV movies included a dozen Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominations for movies like "A Streetcar Named Desire" (ABC, 1984) and "Queen" (CBS, 1993). Through comedic performances, Ann-Margret experienced a big screen resurgence the following decade, revisiting her sexy image to play a middle-aged heartbreaker in the hit "Grumpy Old Men" (1993) and its sequel "Grumpier Old Men" (1995), and introducing herself to a new generation with mother roles in mainstream comedies like "The Break-up" (2006), "Old Dogs" (2009) and "Going In Style" (2017). With her old-school foundation as a well-rounded "entertainer" and a screen versatility that allowed her to toss off sassy one-liners or elicit sympathy as a woman in crisis, Ann-Margret was a revered member of Hollywood's old guard.
