Trim, ladylike American film and theatre actress Elizabeth Allen has seldom been as appropriately cast as she was in John Ford's Donovan's Reef. Elizabeth played the Boston-bred daughter of rapscallion Jack Warden; her impending visit prompts Warden and his drinking buddies John Wayne and Lee Marvin to clean up their act double-quick. In a cinematic world where the "bad girls" get all the good roles, Elizabeth has not always been well-served. It was fascinating, however, to watch her portray an enemy-agent seductress on a 1966 episode of TV's The Man From UNCLE. In 1965, Elizabeth Allen starred in Richard Rodgers' Broadway musical Do I Hear a Waltz?, which closed in about two months, but which enabled Elizabeth to demonstrate her lovely singing voice on the well-circulated Original Cast Album.
