Sandra Dee Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Apr 23, 1942
  • Died: Feb 20, 2005
  • Birth Name: Alexandra Zuck

American actress Sandra Dee began her career as a model at age 12, and later moved on to TV commercials. Her film break came when producer [[Performer~P95216~Ross Hunter~rosshunter]] balked at [[Performer~P77340~Natalie Wood~nataliewood]]'s lofty salary demands and decided to use a newcomer to play [[Performer~P72175~Lana Turner~lanaturner]]'s daughter in [[Feature~V24403~Imitation of Life~imitationoflife]] (1959). The result for Dee was a long-term contract at Universal, although one of her biggest moneymakers was the 1959 Warner Bros. film [[Feature~V47624~A Summer Place~asummerplace]]. In 1961, Dee married singer/actor [[Performer~P17011~Bobby Darin~bobbydarin]], with whom she appeared in three lightweight but money-making comedies. After her divorce from [[Performer~P17011~Darin~bobbydarin]] in 1967, Dee could no longer convey her patented perky-teen charm, and her career began a downhill slide, although the decline was occasionally slowed a bit by such curious highlights as the pseudo-hip sex comedy [[Feature~V89664~Doctor, You've Got to Be Kidding~doctoryouvegottobekidding]] (1967) and the nail-biting psychological scare film [[Feature~V14967~The Dunwich Horror~thedunwichhorror]] (1970). Out of movies completely by 1971, Dee retreated to private life, occasionally popping up on TV and granting interviews with nostalgia-happy young film buffs. Much of the actress' latter-day fame rested upon a single song in the Broadway smash Grease: the satiric, 1950s-style, rock ballad titled "Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
