MORE INFO ON ANNE JEFFREYS: The ever-lovely, poised and vivacious blonde Anne Jeffreys was born Anne Carmichael in 1923 in Goldsboro, North Carolina. Firmly managed by her mother, she trained in voice at a fairly early age and received her first break in the entertainment field after signing with the John Robert Powers agency in New York as a junior model. In the interim, she prepared herself for an operatic career and made her in a production of "La Boheme" in 1940. The following year, however, Anne won a role in the musical review "Fun for the Money" that was to be staged in Hollywood. This, in turn, led to her first movie role in the tuneful Rodgers & Hart adaptation of (1942) starring her singing idols and in their last cinematic pairing.

Put under contract respectively by Republic then RKO studios, Anne was utilized as a plucky heroine in a flux of 40s "B" westerns and crimers opposite such stalwarts as and . Also among her roles was the part of Tess Trueheart in the Dick Tracy series with as the steel-jawed hero, and a co-star role opposite in the war-era musical (1944). None of these, however, were able to propel her into the "A" ranks and her film career quickly dissipated by the end of the 40s. In the meantime, Anne continued to prod her vocal skills with symphonic and stage appearances including "Tosca" at the Brooklyn Opera House, 's "Street Scene" and the musical "My Romance".

Divorced in 1949, Anne met handsome actor during an extended run (887 performances) of "Kiss Me Kate" on . She and Sterling married in 1951 and had three sons. In an attempt to revive their flagging careers, the singing couple toured nighteries and hotels in the early 1950s with a highly successful club act. This led to them being cast as sly, engagingly cavalier spirits in the classic (1953) sitcom. Anne played Marion Kirby ("the ghostess with the mostest") alongside Sterling's dapper husband George. Successfully, undertaking the ectoplasmic roles originated on film by and , the two were an absolute hit as the party-hearty ghosts who reclaim their home to the dismay of current owner .

Anne and Robert weren't able to recreate that same kind of magic when they subsequently co-starred in the short-lived series (1958). In the 1960s Anne semi-retired to raise her family, but occasionally took on musical leads ("Camelot", "The King and I") both on and in regional productions. She later returned full time to TV and became known for her chic, gregarious, sometimes double-dealing matrons on soap operas ( (1969) and (1972)). She was nominated for a Golden Globe for her supporting work in (1972) adventure series, and appeared occasionally as the mother of on (1989).

Unlike her husband, who retired decades ago (he died in 2006), Anne remains a tireless performer past age 80. Still quite a beauty, she has been recognized over the years for her civic and humanitarian efforts.
