Actress Sandra Dee (April 23, 1942 – February 20, 2005) She began
her career as a model and progressed to film. Dee won a Golden Globe
Award in 1959 as one of the year’s most promising newcomers, and over
several years her films were popular. By the late 1960s her career had
started to decline, and a highly publicized marriage to Bobby Darin ended
in divorce. She rarely acted after this time, and her final years were marred
by illness; she died as a result of renal failure.
