She was a young lady who developed, physically, early as a teen. Because of her striking good looks, she began to model and was extremely successful throughout the 1940s. It was only natural that her physical assets eventually landed her on the silver screen. Her first go at films occurred in 1948 with roles as - what else? - a model in The Counterfeiters (1948), Julia Misbehaves (1948) and Easter Parade (1948). She was 20 years old. Her acting wasn't exactly polished in the beginning, but producers did not care - she was hired because of her looks and her body.The following year brought more of the same, getting parts (mostly uncredited) in films as nothing more than a showpiece. Joi took a hiatus from films in 1950 while she concentrated on her modeling career. She returned to the big screen in 1951 to play minor roles, but this time it was a little better. She played Susan Matthews in F.B.I. Girl (1951) and Marilyn Turner in On the Riviera (1951) - at least she had names to go along with her characters. Then it was back to being a showpiece. In 1952, she had an uncredited role in one of the most popular movies of all time, Singin' in the Rain (1952). Another minor role as the Maxim Girl in The Merry Widow (1952) followed. She began appearing on television in 1955 when she played in an episode of Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1951) and one of I Love Lucy (1951) the following year.In 1955, Joi landed a recurring role as Shirley Swanson in the television series The Bob Cummings Show (1955). It was this series that proved to all that Joi could, indeed, act and act well. Because of this series, she began to get a few more substantial parts in films such as The Brave One (1956), Hot Cars (1956) and So You Think the Grass Is Greener (1956), all in 1956. Then it was back to bit roles. For the balance of the 1950s, she continued to appear in B movies with less than quality roles. After appearing in the comedy film Who Was That Lady? (1960), Joi landed the role of Goldie in the television series Klondike (1960). However, most viewers remember her as the wife of Lester Flatt on the situation comedy The Beverly Hillbillies (1962), which she appeared on and off from 1965-1968.As Gladys Flatt, her beauty even surpassed that of Elly May Clampett, played by Donna Douglas. Her film career was winding down and she appeared as Boots Malone in the B movie Hillbillys in a Haunted House (1967), which went nowhere. Joi Lansing was diagnosed with breast cancer, and died at age 43 on August 7, 1972 in Santa Monica, California.

Some Joi Lansing images



Lansing was born Joy Rae Brown at Holy Cross Hospital, Salt Lake City, Utah in 1929 to Jack Glen Brown (also known as Glen Jack Brown and Glenn Jack Brown; 1900–1960), a shoe salesman and orchestra musician, and Virginia Grace (née Shupe) Brown, a housewife (1908–1984).


She would later be known by her stepfathers' Surnames, i.e. Wassmansdorff and Loveland. In 1940, her family moved to Los Angeles, where her half-brother, Larry Vernon Loveland, was born the same year. She began modeling in her teens, and at age 14 was signed to a contract at MGM. She completed high school on the studio lot.


Lansing's film career began in 1948, and in 1952, she played an uncredited role in MGM's Singin' in the Rain. She received top billing in Hot Cars (1956), a crime drama involving a stolen-car racket. In the opening sequence of Orson Welles's Touch of Evil (1958), she appeared as Zita, the Dancer who dies at the end of the famous first tracking shot, during which her character exclaims to a border guard, "I keep hearing this ticking noise inside my head!"


What was possibly Lansing's best role may ironically have been her least-seen as the leading lady in The Fountain of Youth, a Peabody Award-winning unsold television pilot directed by Orson Welles for Desilu in 1956 and broadcast on the Colgate Theatre two years later. The half-hour film remains available for public viewing at the Paley Center for Media in New York City and Los Angeles.


In 1957, she played Vera Payson in the Perry Mason episode, "The Case of the Crimson Kiss". She is best known perhaps as Shirley Swanson in The Bob Cummings Show or Love That Bob (1956–59). She appeared in several episodes as a busty model who was the foil for Photographer Bob Collins, Cummings' series name. The series ran for 173 episodes. She achieved some distinction for beating out Lois Lane (Noel Neill) to marry Superman (George Reeves) as the title character in "Superman's Wife", a 1958 episode of The Adventures of Superman.


She had a brief role as an astronaut's girlfriend in the 1958 sci-fi classic Queen of Outer Space. She had fourth billing in another sci-fi story, 1959's The Atomic Submarine. During the 1960s, she starred in short musical films for the Scopitone video-jukebox system. Her songs included "The Web of Love" and "The Silencer".


In the 1960–61 season of Klondike, Lansing appeared as Goldie with Ralph Taeger, James Coburn, and Mari Blanchard. In 1960, she appeared as Evelyn in the "Election Bet" episode of the Mr. Lucky TV series (season 1, episode 34). In May 1963, Lansing appeared in Falcon Frolics '63. The broadcast honored the men stationed at the Vandenberg Air Force Base. By 1956, she had appeared in more than 200 television shows. The real count according to IMDb is around 104 appearances.


In 1964, Producer Stanley Todd discussed a film project with Lansing, tentatively titled Project 22, with location shooting planned in Yugoslavia, and George Hamilton and Geraldine Chaplin named to the cast. The movie was never made.


Lansing played "Lola" in the romantic comedy Marriage on the Rocks (1965) with a cast that included Frank Sinatra, Deborah Kerr, and Dean Martin. She previously had appeared in Sinatra's drama A Hole in the Head and in Martin's comedy Who Was That Lady?. She turned down the chance to replace Jayne Mansfield in The Ice House (a horror film), and instead appeared opposite Basil Rathbone (in his last film appearance) and John Carradine in Hillbillys in a Haunted House, as Mamie Van Doren's replacement. Her last film was Bigfoot (1970).


Lansing died from breast cancer on August 7, 1972, at St. John's Hospital, Santa Monica, California. She had been treated surgically for the disease two years earlier. She also suffered from severe anemia. She was survived by her mother, half-brother, and paternal grandmother. While some press accounts gave her age as 37, she was actually 43 years old.
