Happy Birthday, Lesley Ann Warren!

Today is the birthday of Lesley Ann Warren, star of stage, screen, and television!

Warren made her big splash in Cinderella in 1965, an updated version of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical production from 1957.  She then joined the cast of Mission:Impossible for the 1970-1971 season as IM agent Dana Lambert. The acting process on this series did not suit her, and she left after only one year.

In 1979 Warren won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama for her work in Harold Robbins' 79 Park Avenue. Later that year, she portrayed the lead in Portrait of a Stripper. Ironically, she later portrayed a female customer at a male strip club in A Night In Heaven (1983).

In 1982 she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Victor/Victoria. She also portrayed Miss Scarlet in Clue in 1985.
