Madlyn Rhue - Rotten Tomatoes

Madlyn Rhue

Highest Rated:   100% The Ladies' Man (1961)
Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Not Available
Madlyn Rhue, on her own in New York since the mid-'50s, took short-term jobs ranging from cigarette girl to magician's assistant. She made her TV acting debut in 1959, the same year that she appeared in her first film, The Miracle. Not a great beauty by 1960s standards, Rhue's face had an aura of inner resilience, enabling her to portray virtually everything from long-suffering heroines to calculating villainesses. Her busy private life was always a source of interest to gossip columnists; in her heyday, she was squired by such eligibles as Cary Grant and Vic Damone. In the 1980s, Rhue fell victim to a neuromuscular illness which limited her to roles that did not require her to walk or stand up. Eventually, Madlyn Rhue worked just long enough each year to cover her medical expenses; she was most often seen in the recurring role of the Cabot Cove librarian in the weekly TV mystery series Murder She Wrote.
