Barbara Nichols

Lowest Rated: 50% The Loved One (1965)
Birthday: Dec 30, 1929
Birthplace: Not Available
A one-time exotic dancer, buxom blonde actress Barbara Nichols more than once portrayed strippers during her film and TV career. But she also was a persuasive dramatic actress when the need arose, as well as an articulate, well-read young lady offscreen. When not removing her clothes on-camera, Nichols could be seen portraying a variety of dim-bulbed blondes, gun molls, and gold-diggers, imbuing each character with an expert sense of comic timing and subtle inner lining of pathos. She was a favorite foil for many of TV's top comedians of the 1950s and 1960s, notably Jack Benny, who frequently cast Ms. Nichols as his brash, gum-chewing steady date on his weekly TV series. A film actress since 1954, Barbara Nichols curtailed her screen appearances in her last years due to the liver disease that would take her life at the age of 46.
