Lola Albright Overview:

Actress, Lola Albright, was born on Jul 20, 1925 in Akron, OH. As of December 2023, Lola Albright was 98 years old.


Blonde ex-typist and telephonist, Lola Albright, broke into films in 1948 and was winning leading roles two years later. However she seldom got the roles that her talent and smoldering personality seemed to warrant, and she was lost to TV for long periods, first in Peter Gunn, then in Peyton Place. She was married to actor Jack Carson from 1952 to 1958.

Lola Albright Facts
Inherited her singing talents from her parents, both evangelistic singers; started in films as an MGM singing extra, in The Pirate (1948), Easter Parade (1948) and The Unfinished Dance (1947).

Won the "Best Actress" Award (Silver Bear) at the Berlin Film Festival in 1966 for Lord Love a Duck (1966); there was a controversy because some members of the jury wanted to cite the three female leads of the movie (Albright, Tuesday Weld and Ruth Gordon), but other members felt that to give a "joint" award would diminish the award's significance. (In 2006, for example, the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival went to the female "cast" of Volver (2006/I), rather than just to Penélope Cruz).

Her popularity as sultry, dusky-voiced nightclub singer Edie Hart on TV's "Peter Gunn" (1958) series inspired two record albums, "Lola Wants You" and Dreamsville".
