40 Glamorous Photos of English Actress Dawn Addams in the 1950s and ’60s

Born 1930 in Felixstowe, Suffolk, English actress Dawn Addams began her film career with a role in Night into Morning (1951). Her subsequent films included Singin’ In The Rain (1952), Plymouth Adventure (1952), Young Bess (1953), the female lead in The Hour of 13 (1952), and David Niven’s daughter in The Moon Is Blue (1953), a film which helped loosen the system of censorship of Hollywood which had been in place since 1934.

Addams worked steadily in films during the remainder of the 1950s, including a heavily publicised role as Richard Carlson’s model girlfriend in the science fiction film Riders to the Stars (1954) and the female lead opposite actor-director-filmmaker legend Charlie Chaplin in his final comedy to star himself, A King in New York (1957).

During the 1960s and 1970s, she appeared mainly in British TV shows and French films. One of her last television roles was in the science fiction serial Star Maidens (1977).

Addams retired in the early 1980s, dividing her remaining years between Europe and the United States. She died in 1985 in a London hospital at age 54 from cancer.
