Biography

A graduate of New York's American Academy of Dramatic Art, sultry brunette Lynn Cartwright made quite a splash in the early films of producer/director Roger Corman, often in tandem with her husband, actor/writer Leo Gordon. Perhaps best remembered as the tough-talking switchboard operator Maureen Reardon in The Wasp Woman (1959), Cartwright, who also acted under the name of Danielle Carver, did her fair share of television work, as well, including guest stints on Maverick, Adam-12, and Little House on the Prairie. Her last film appearance was as the older Dottie in 1992's A League of Their Own. She died January 2, 2004. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
