Beverly Tyler - Rotten Tomatoes

Beverly Tyler



American actress Beverly Tyler was a radio singer in her teens, which led to a film contract at MGM. Her first film was a bit in a comedy about autograph seekers, The Youngest Profession (1943), followed by a better part in the collegiate musical Best Foot Forward (1943). Better known in fan magazines for her studio-controlled social life than her cinematic accomplishments, Tyler was cast opposite erstwhile beau Tom Drake in The Green Years (1946), which she insisted was her favorite film. Amidst several forgettable film appearances, Beverly flexed her considerable vocal muscles as soloist with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and as leading lady in a Los Angeles production of composer Irving Berlin's "brave failure" Miss Liberty. She worked a great deal in '50s television, mostly as a songstress on variety programs, and for one season as newspaper sob-sister Lorelei Kilbourne on Big Town, a role played at various times during the series' 1950-55 run by Mary K. Wells, Julie Stevens, Jane Nigh and Trudy Rowe. Except for occasional recreational flings at little-theatre acting, Beverly Tyler retired upon the occasion of her 1962 marriage to Jim Jordan Jr., son of radio's Fibber McGee.
