Diane Brewster Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Mar 11, 1931
  • Died: Nov 12, 1991

When bandleader [[Performer~P34178~Ina Ray Hutton~inarayhutton]] launched her TV series in 1956, much was made of the fact that the entire on-camera cast was female -- right down to the announcer, a lovely newcomer named Diane Brewster. Signed to a Warner Bros. contract shortly after the inauguration of the [[Performer~P34178~Hutton~inarayhutton]] show, Brewster appeared in several decorative film roles, the best of which was Kate Lawrence in [[Feature~V56003~The Young Philadelphians~theyoungphiladelphians]] (1959). She also showed up sporadically as bewitched confidence trickster Samantha Crawford on the Warner Bros. TV series [[Feature~V133112~Maverick~maverick[tvseries]]] (1957-1962), and later starred as Wilhelmina "Steamboat Willie" Vanderveer in the weekly Warners actioner The Islanders (1960). Devotees of Leave It to Beaver will remember Brewster as Beaver's teacher Miss Canfield during the series' inaugural 1957-1958 season (she'd played an entirely different role in the 1956 Beaver pilot episode, "It's a Small World"). Thirty-five years later, the still-gorgeous Diane Brewster reprised her Miss Canfield characterization in the 1983 TV-movie [[Feature~V129209~Still the Beaver~stillthebeaver]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
