Beautiful Photos of Gayle Hunnicutt in the 1960s and ’70s

Born 1943 in Fort Worth, Texas, American retired actress Gayle Hunnicutt was typecast as a brunette sexpot during her film career. She portrayed Emaline Fetty, a con woman trying to extort money from the Clampetts in two episodes of The Beverly Hillbillies in 1966, and co-starred with James Garner in the detective film Marlowe (1969), in which her character was a glamorous Hollywood actress.

After she moved to England with husband David Hemmings in 1970, Hunnicutt was able to use the finer range of her acting. She and Hemmings co-starred in two horror films in the early 1970s, Fragment of Fear (1970) and Voices (1973). She had a prominent role as Charlotte Stant in Jack Pulman’s television adaptation of Henry James’s novel The Golden Bowl (1972).

Hunnicutt returned to the United States in 1989 to play the role of Vanessa Beaumont in Dallas until 1991. In 2012, she was featured in an episode of the HGTV reality show Selling London.

Hunnicutt has written two books. The first, Health and Beauty in Motherhood, was published in 1984. In 2004, she published Dearest Virginia: Love Letters from a Cavalry Officer in the South Pacific, which contains the letters exchanged by her parents during World War II.
