Biography by Hal Erickson

After stage and modelling experience, raven-haired leading lady Paula Raymond entered films as a Columbia stock actress. In 1950, she moved to MGM, where she played prominent roles opposite Cary Grant (Crisis), Van Johnson (Grounds for Marriage) and Dick Powell (The Tall Target). "Shock theatre" fans remember Raymond best as the screaming heroine in Beast From 20,000 Fathoms (1952). Working less and less as the 1950s segued into the 1960s, Paula Raymond closed out her career in inexpensive horror films.
