Fabulous Photos of American Actress Ann Robinson in the 1950s

Born 1929, American former actress and stunt horse rider Ann Robinson became an accomplished rider, which led to her first professional work in Hollywood as a stunt rider in film Frenchie with Shelley Winters.

After doubling for Winters in Frenchie (1950), Robinson starred and rode in several Westerns during her career such as The Cimarron Kid (1951) with Audie Murphy, Gun Brothers (1956), and Gun Duel in Durango (1957).

Robinson is perhaps best known for her work in the science-fiction classic The War of the Worlds (1953) and in the 1954 film Dragnet, in which she starred as a Los Angeles police officer opposite Jack Webb and Ben Alexander.

In the 2005 Steven Spielberg film, War of the Worlds, Robinson played a cameo role as Tom Cruise’s character’s mother-in-law, the grandmother of Dakota Fanning’s character, alongside her long-ago co-star Gene Barry. Upon completing this role, she retired from acting.

Take a look at these fabulous photos to see portraits of a young Ann Robinson in the 1950s.
