Angie Dickinson Overview:

Legendary actress, Angie Dickinson, was born Angeline Brown on Sep 30, 1931 in Kulm, ND. As of December 2023, Angie Dickinson was 92 years old.


Long-legged, blonde American actress who entered films via beauty contests. Most film writers patently think Miss Dickinson hard done-by in the cinema but to me she has always been rather plastic, a mold that clearly hardened to polystyrene in her TV series Policewoman. It took French director Roger Vadim (in Pretty Maids All in a Row) to make her seem really sexy, and she worked regularly in France for a while in the seventies. Married to composer Burt Bacharach 1965-1980. Has lived with singer John Barrowman since 1992.

She was honored with one star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of Television. Dickinson was never nominated for an Academy Award.
