Yvonne De Carlo’s Biography

Her parents were the seller William Middleton and her wife, the aspiring actress Marie De Carlo. Her maternal grandfather, Michael De Carlo, was born in Sicily, Italy, and her maternal grandmother, Margaret Purvis, was of Scottish origin. Both grandparents worked for Lord Kitchener, she as a butler and she as a secretary, she was familiarly called Peggy. Her father left the family home when Yvonne was three years old. As a child she received dance classes and left high school to work in nightclubs and local theaters. Her passion for dancing continued when she moved with her mother to Los Angeles. She was elected “Miss Venice Beach” in 1940.

Paramount Pictures hired her in 1942, and that’s when she adopted her mother’s maiden name. After a score of small papers left the Paramount by Universal. The actress interpreted in its beginnings small papers in cinematographic productions like Route to Morocco or For whom the bell tolls, the adaptation of the homonymous novel of Hemingway, thanks, partly, to its exotic fotogenia. Nevertheless, the fame would not arrive until 1945, by means of the film Salomé, the bewitching one.

From then on, Yvonne starred in a large number of films, covering several genres, from westerns and films with an Arabic setting, to black films (where her performance in Criss Cross stands out), drama and comedy. And she showed her talent by performing alongside screen greats, such as Burt Lancaster, Rock Hudson, Clark Gable, Alec Guinness and David Niven.

In most of her films De Carlo also demonstrated her talent as a dancer and singer, in the film The Captain’s Paradise (1953) she convinced the director to have Sir Alec Guinness dance the mambo, offering herself as an instructor.

In 1955, De Carlo married Robert Drew Morgan (1915-1999), a first-class double with whom she had two children, Bruce Ross (born 1956) and Michael (1957-1997); the couple suffered several separations and reconciliations.

In 1954, during the preparation of the biblical-epic film The Ten Commandments (1956) by Cecil B. DeMille, the actress Audrey Hepburn was suggested for the role of “Nefertari” and the actress Anne Baxter was chosen for the role of “Zipporah”. Shortly after, Hepburn was rejected for the role of Egyptian princess of the throne for being too “flat-chested”, and the role of “Nefertari” was given to Baxter.

When DeMille saw De Carlo in Sombrero (1953), she offered her the vacant role of “Séfora”. De Carlo accepted, and rejected another role that was offered in a German movie at the time. The actress once said: “Working with Mr. DeMille was a learning experience thatwill never forget.” With a salary of $ 25,000, De Carlo’s interpretative performance in the film made her a first-class actress who could play any kind of role in big-budget movies.

In addition to filming at Paramount Studios, De Carlo accompanied DeMille and the rest of the film crew to Egypt, where several exterior scenes were filmed. De Carlo met Robert Drew Morgan in Egypt, and married him on November 21, 1955 in the Episcopal Chapel of Reno, Nevada. For him it was her second marriage, and she had a daughter of the previous one, Bari Lee (born 1947).

The following year, in 1957, she played another of her most memorable roles, that of the film directed by Raoul Walsh Band of Angels, starring alongside Clark Gable and Sidney Poitier, where she played Amantha Starr. , the daughter of a southern landowner who discovers after the death of her father that she has black blood, so she is stripped of her land and sold to a handsome gentleman at a slave auction.

Yvonne De Carlo recorded an LP called Yvonne De Carlo Sings in 1957.

In 1962 during the filming of a dangerous scene on a moving train for How the West Was Won, Morgan fell under the wheels in an accident that cost him a leg. The study was not responsible and refused to compensate. The Morgan family was experiencing financial difficulties due to medical expenses.

John Wayne, Yvonne’s friend, offered him a role in the movie McLintock! (1963); but this help did not help much. That’s how De Carlo decided to accept the role of Lily, the most famous vampire mother of all time, in the television series The Munsters in the mid-sixties. Although the series was only recorded for two years (from 1964 to 1966), it was a great success, and became a cult series, with reruns for more than four decades.

At the end of the series, the cast (except Pat Priest), starred in a film based on it, Munster Go Home (The inheritance of the Munsters) (1966).

During the rest of the decade Yvonne returned to the big screen and appeared in westerns like Hostile Guns (1967) or Arizona Bushwhackers (1968) and in The Power (1968) (a science fiction film).

At the beginning of the 70 ‘she ended her marriage with Robert (Bob) Drew Morgan, specifically in 1974.

In that year of 1974 Yvonne got a very important role in the Broadway musical Follies by Stephen Sondheim, a work that has won seven Tony awards in its entire history. Her character was Carlotta Campion.
