  • British actress Dawn Addams launched her career in Hollywood, after completing her education in England, India, and the United States. She was briefly under contract to MGM, where she played supporting parts in such films as Night Unto Morning (1951) and Plymouth Adventure (1952), as well as a bit in Singin' in the Rain (1952). Even as a freelance actress, her roles were more decorous than substantial: she gets good billing in The Robe (1953) as one of Richard Burton's castaway lady friends, but disappears from the film before reel two. Dawn's stock in trade was the conveyence of icy, unobtainable beauty, a quality that Charles Chaplin utilized to the utmost in A King in New York (1957), wherein Dawn had her best role as an American commercial actress. Thanks to her lofty family lineage, Ms. Addams moved in the best English and European social circles during the 1950s and 1960s; from 1954 through 1971, she was married to Italian prince Vittorio Massimo. When American producer Sheldon Reynolds needed European bluebloods to appear in small roles in his TV series "Foreign Intrigue" and "Sherlock Holmes," Dawn acted as liason in rounding up upper-class talent -- hich may explain why she was a frequent guest star in Reynolds' various series. As her film career petered out in the 1960s, Dawn could be seen on television with increasing frequency: She was a semi-regular on the instructional series "En France" (1962) and the campy sci-fi serial "Star Maidens" (1977), and she was a ubiquitous leading lady in several episodes of "The Saint" (1963-67). Dawn Addams retired from films in the early 1980s, dividing her remaining years between Europe and United States.
