Joi Lansing Overview:

Character actress, Joi Lansing, was born Joyce Renee Brown on Apr 6, 1929 in Salt Lake City, UT. Lansing died at the age of 43 on Aug 7, 1972 in Santa Monica, CA .


Joi Lansing was an attractive, buxom American actress with silky blonde hair -- a 'minor-league' Jayne Mansfield, but hotter on the wisecracks. She probably had more talent than most of her rivals on the sexpot scene, but lacked an aura of innocence. She had one or two B-movie leads (the last as late as 1969), but was mostly confined to cameos and minor roles. From 1951-1953, she was married to actor Lance Fuller (one of three husbands). She died of cancer at age 44.
