Lynn Bari

After acting in many Hollywood films as a "femme fatale," Miss Bari found "Boss Lady," a 1952 sitcom in which she starred, a welcome relief. Virginia-born Lynn became a New Englander early in life, then moved to California, where she decided on a dramatic career.

One day she read an advertisement calling for tall girls who could dance. Lynn and two other girls were selected out of 200 applicants, even though Lynn's experience was strictly of the home parlor variety. When the dance director found out the next day, he nevertheless retained her in the film as a showgirl whose chief mission was to look beautiful, a job she easily filled.

Lead roles came her way and Miss Bari's long tenure as a film siren began in earnest. One day she heard an especially vixenish character described as "You know, a typical Lynn Bari part." That did it. She decided to free-lance and select her own roles, preferably those that didn't present her as the eternal part of the omnipresent triangle.

At home she discarded her glamorous creations and wore slacks and flat-heeled shoes. On the sports side, she enjoyed ice-skating, golf, swimming, and riding. Her pet dislikes—long telephone conversations, cocktail parties and athletic gum-chewers.

Lynn Bari—real name Marjorie Fisher—lived in Beverly Hills with her mother. Formerly married, had a four-year-old son. Lynn has dark brown hair, was five feet inches tall, weighed 122 pounds.

She was very fond of dogs and very partial to the comic strip, "L'il Abner."
