Actress Gail Gerber dies at 76

WENN

Actress Gail Gerber has died at the age of 76. The blonde star passed away in Connecticut over the weekend following a battle with lung cancer. After moving from Canada to Hollywood, Gerber landed her first roles in 1964, appearing on TV series "Mr. Novak," "My Three Sons," "Perry Mason" and "Wagon Train."

She then graduated to the big screen, appearing in a number of teen films under the name Gail Gilmore, starring opposite Elvis Presley twice in "Girl Happy" and "Harum Scarum," both shot in 1965. Gerber also starred opposite the Beach Boys in 1965 film "The Girls on the Beach" and in sci-fi classic "Village of the Giants."

In 1966, she quit acting to marry Oscar-nominated screenwriter Terry Southern, who helped to write "Easy Rider" and "Dr. Strangelove." The couple was together for 30 years before Southern died aged 71 in 1995.

Would have been nice to see a picture although I have an idea who she was. Too bad it's missing that kind of basic information.

I agree! Now I will be wasting time to go look at what she looked like and Girl Happy was one of my favorites but that doesn't mean I can just picture her in my head!

I agree with the others. How hard could have been to include a photo of Ms. Gerber. I live in Connecticut, and will check out the local TV news. RIP Ms. Gerber.

Hmm, stupid Bing, how I hate thee!  I wish they would disengage from msn so I could go back to enjoying my homepage.

I tried to paste a photo I found of her but Bing doesn't want to play nice.
