Sheree North (1932-2005)

  1. Marilyn Monroe, All About Eve,  1949.
  2. Kim Novak, Phffft, 1954.      Created by Fox to replace Marilyn Monroe, the sassy Sheree was about to be borrowed by Columbia when the feature debut of Kim (soon being pushed to replace Rita Hayworth) made her a Pushover for the little comedy.
  3. Angie Dickinson, Rio Bravo, 1958.
  4. Joanne Dru, Sylvia, 1965.      Missed being among the character players saving - aka stealing - a would-de female Citizen Kane look at the life of a a poet who was raped as a child, became a hooker and blackmailed her way to riches - dully performed by Carroll Baker, Peter Lawford, George Maharis. 
  5. Vera Miles, The Green Berets, 1967.   Like many other actors, North refused to join John Wayne’s old-fashioned and ill-informed Vietnam film. Chicago critic Roger Ebert buried the movie as “cruel and dishonest and unworthy of the thousands who have died there.” When Duke’s politics were not up front, she agreed in 1976 to co-star in what proved his final movie. A Western of course. The Shootist.  A so-called bimbo, as woefully  mishandled by Fox as poor Marilyn was, Sheree has a career of 47 years and 111 screen roles with everyone from Bob Hope and Elvis to John Wayne and being  mother of Marilyn: The Untold, Story, 1980, and of Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld.
