Sandra Dee (Sandra Dee)

Sandra Dee

Actress. Born Alexandra Zuck, she made her professional debut as a model at age four, was appearing in commercials by age twelve and at the age of fourteen made her first film, “Until they Sail.” In 1958 she won a Golden Globe Award for “Most Promising Newcomer.” She became known for her wholesome roles in such films as “Imitation of Life,” “Gidget” and “A Summer Place.” She had moderately successful film appearances in the 1960’s but never returned to the heights of popularity she enjoyed in the previous decade. However, her 1950’s stardom was celebrated in the song “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee” featured in the Broadway musical “Grease” and in 2004, her life with her husband (actor Bobby Darin) was portrayed in the film “Beyond the Sea.” For most of her life she struggled with ill health battling alcoholism, depression, throat cancer and kidney ailments.
