Actress Anne Jeffreys turns 93 today.
Anne was born on January 26, 1923, in Goldsboro, North Carolina.
In addition to starring in many films, Anne has been a longtime presence on TV, including TOPPER (1953-55) and a lengthy run on GENERAL HOSPITAL (1984-2004).
Her numerous musical theater roles included replacing Patricia Morison in the title role in the original Broadway run of KISS ME, KATE. It's nice to note that original KATE star Patricia Morison is also still with us, due to turn 101 in a few weeks' time.
Anne was married to actor Robert Sterling from 1951 until his passing in 2006. They had three sons. Anne was the stepmother of actress Tisha Sterling, Robert Sterling's daughter with actress Ann Sothern.
