Brenda Joyce


Recommended Posts

Brenda Joyce (not the novelist) passed away last July at the age of 92. Some obits stated 97, but her birthday, which she confirmed to me a number of years ago, was indeed February 25, 1917. She had been in failing health for the past decade.


Most fans recall her role as Tarzan's mate to Johnny Weissmuller, and then to Lex Barker (for one film). But the actress appeared in many films including The Rains Came (her debut). She gave up acting altogether in 1949.


It would be a fine tribute for TCM to air some of her lesser known films, such as Public Deb. No. 1 and Shaggy. She also had a prominent role in the Abbott and Costello vehicle Little Giant.


RIP lovely lady.

Hi CineMaven, long time no see although I follow your posts on the boards.

I keep busy searching out images for the CANDIDS thread which appears to be still

popular after a year.

I'm looking forward to your stint as host of the TCM Programmers event soon.

You go girl!
