Though she seldom rose above the second-string ranks, she was quite popular with the servicemen as a WWII pin-up. As many others before her, TV proved a welcome medium in the 50s as her film career fell away, appearing in guest spots and commercials. Widowed in 1965, her health began to deteriorate in the 90s and she was forced to move to the Motion Picture Country Home. Anne Gwynne had the looks and talent to be a top star, but not the luck.
