Carolyn Jones

Highest Rated: 100% The Big Heat (1953)

Lowest Rated: 20% The Opposite Sex (1956)

Birthday: Apr 28, 1930

Birthplace: Amarillo, Texas, USA

Talented character player and occasional lead with a distinctive alto voice and enormous eyes. Most typically in offbeat roles, Jones received an Oscar nomination for her supporting turn as a quirky, artsy type encountered by a group of men out on the town in "The Bachelor Party" (1957). At one time the wife of producer Aaron Spelling, Jones is best remembered for her highly amusing characterization of the deliberately ghoulish Morticia on the ABC TV sitcom "The Addams Family" (1964-66).
