Raven-haired, well-scrubbed Canadian actress Barbara Parkins made her film bow in the 1961 British crime drama 20,000 Eyes. Parkin's most fondly remembered role was the much-married Betty Harrington in the American TV series Peyton Place, which ran from 1964 through 1969. She reprised Betty for a 1985 "reunion" TV movie, and played a variation of the character in the 1967 theatrical feature Valley of the Dolls. While her stardom pretty much ended with the 1960s, she has remained most active in made-for-TV features, playing Anna Held in Ziegfeld: The Man and His Women (1978) and the Duchess of Windsor in To Catch a King (1984). In 1991, Barbara Parkins returned to the weekly-TV grind on the Canadian-filmed dramatic anthology Scene of the Crime, essaying a different role in each episode.
