One of the most beautiful women to ever grace a movie screen has passed away. Lori Nelson started her career in the 1952 film "Bend In The River" and never looked back.
She worked for Universal studios during their heyday and was first brought to my attention in "Ma And Pa Kettle At The Fair" which was also made in 1952. Her beauty captivated me and I sought out every film she was ever in.
Fans who read this are probably familiar with such films as "Underwater" and "Revenge Of The Creature" which she made at Universal. She also starred in my favorite Roger Corman film "Day The World Ended" and that is the film that I really fell head over heels in love with her.
Her other screen credits included "Hot Rod Girl", "Mohawk" and "Untamed Youth". Beauty, acting ability and all round talent made her an icon of my formative years.
She leaves behind a wonderful legacy of films and TV appearances that I for one will alway cherish. She passed away on Aug. 23rd, 2020 at the age of 87 from Alzheimer's Disease. RIP to a very wonderful lady.
