Gorgeous Photos of Lori Nelson in the 1950s and ’60s

Born 1933 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, American actress and model Lori Nelson made her film debut in the 1952 Western Bend of the River. In 1955, Nelson guest starred in two episodes of It’s a Great Life, and reprised her role as “Rosie Kettle” in Ma and Pa Kettle at Waikiki. That same year, she co-starred in the Creature From the Black Lagoon sequel Revenge of the Creature and Underwater! with Jane Russell and Richard Egan.

Her supporting roles in films included the low-budget sci-fi story Day the World Ended (1955), and a big-budget Paramount Pictures comedy-Western, Pardners (1956). Nelson had a featured role in I Died a Thousand Times, a 1955 remake of High Sierra, as well as in 1954’s Destry, a remake of Destry Rides Again.

Nelson was perhaps best known for her roles in the TV series How to Marry a Millionaire and the films Revenge of the Creature, All I Desire, and I Died a Thousand Times. Her last role was in the 2005 low-budget science fiction horror film The Naked Monster, in which she reprised her role from Revenge of the Creature.

Nelson died in 2020 at her home in Porter Ranch, Los Angeles, aged 87. Take a look at these gorgeous photos to see the beauty of young Lori Nelson in the 1950s and 1960s.
