Beautiful Photos of a Young Carol Lynley in the 1950s and ’60s

Born 1942 as Carole Ann Jones in Manhattan, New York, American actress Carol Lynley began her career as a child model before taking up acting. She won the Theatre World Award as “one of the most promising personalities for 1956-57” for her performance in The Potting Shed.

Lynley started her film career in 1958 with the Disney film The Light in the Forest followed by Holiday for Lovers (1959) and Blue Denim (1959). In 1959, She was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Most Promising Newcomer – Female for the film The Light in the Forest, and the film Blue Denim in 1960.

The decline in her career started in the late 1960s and ’70s. She did smaller roles, guest appearances and appeared in low-budget productions. Many of the low-budget movies she acted in during the later part of her career were direct-to-video.

Lynley died aged 77 of a heart attack in 2019, at her home in Pacific Palisades, California.
