Janit Baldwin had a fleeting, but still memorable and impressive ten year career as an actress. Born in 1955 and raised by her actress mother Dona Baldwin in Kansas City, the diminutive blue-eyed and auburn-haired Janit made her film debut at age 17 in Michael Ritchie's "Prime Cut" (1972).

Moreover, Ms. Baldwin made guest appearances on the television programs "Baretta," "Gunsmoke," "Hawaii Five-O," "The Waltons," and "Emergency!". Besides her TV and film credits, Janit also acted in stage plays and television commercials. Following her winning portrayal of a spunky young lady in the strictly so-so slasher item "Humongous" (1982), Janit Baldwin quit acting and has since gone on to have a successful career as a fashion designer.
