BIOGRAPHY

Dawn Addams was a pretty leading lady of several romantic films of the 1950s, very much in the Audrey Hepburn-Shirley MacLaine gamine vein of that era (as opposed to the Marilyn Monroe-Jane Russell-Jayne Mansfield school). Educated in several countries, she moved to Hollywood in 1950, played several supporting role in films toplining the likes of Spencer Tracy and Gene Tierney ("Plymouth Adventure" 1952) and David Niven and William Holden ("The Moon Is Blue" 1953) before attaining leading lady status. Probably her best known lead was opposite Charlie Chaplin in his satire "A King in New York" (1957), but she also acted in Fritz Lang's "The Thousand Eyes of Dr. Mabuse" (1960), in which the director revisited the character he had immortalized on film four decades earlier. Addams also decorated a number of comedies and adventures made in France and Italy (e.g. "Secrets d'Alcove" 1954), but by the early 60s slipped to occasional supporting roles and later did British TV work.
