Beautiful Photos of Nita Talbot in the 1950s and ’60s

Born 1930 as Anita Sokol in New York City, American actress Nita Talbot began her acting career appearing as a model in the 1949 film It’s a Great Feeling. She was afforded a wealth of varied screen roles, from the love-starved switchboard operator in A Very Special Favor (1965) to the sharp-tongued Madame Esther in Buck and the Preacher (1972). She also appeared in such films as Bright Leaf (1950), This Could Be the Night (1957), I Married a Woman (1958), Who’s Got the Action? (1962), Girl Happy (1965), The Day of the Locust (1975), Serial (1980), Chained Heat (1983), Fraternity Vacation (1985), and Puppet Master II (1991).

Talbol appeared in many TV series such as Joe and Mabel (1956). She received an Emmy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for the 1967–68 season of Hogan’s Heroes.

Talbot was married twice—first to actor Don Gordon (1954-1958; divorced) and then to actor Thomas A. Geas (1961, until their divorce, year unknown). She has one child, a daughter, with second husband Thomas Geas.
