Beverly Lunsford was a highly gifted ingenue whose early career encompassed the stage as well as television and movies. Among Lunsford's earliest professional credits was the 1957 Broadway production of The Rope Dancers, starring Siobhan McKenna and Art Carney, in which she appeared when she was 12. Her television career began earlier, and Lunsford's big-screen work started soon after. She appeared in anthology dramas, and on television series such as National Velvet, Leave It to Beaver, and, later, My Three Sons, in guest roles and supporting parts, and also essayed the role of Amy Ames Britton Kincaid on The Secret Storm. The peak of Lunsford's movie career came in 1961 when she played a starring role in Roger Corman's topical drama The Intruder, which dealt with race relations in the south in the wake of the Brown vs. Board of Education ruling. Alas, that movie never got the exposure it deserved, and Lunsford next turned up in Herbert L. Strock's notoriously bad horror movie The Crawling Hand (1963). She retired from the screen after the 1960s, though she apparently appeared at some public celebrity-oriented events later on.
