Biography

Los Angeles, California, USA
Tall, provocative actress Joan Woodbury was born Joanne Woodbury in Los Angeles on December 17, 1915. Of Danish, English and Indian heritage, she was educated for seven years in a convent. Trained in dance, she was already performing in her mid-teens by the time she graduated from Hollywood High School.
