Dorothy Provine, RIP

Sad news: Dorothy Provine, whose acting credits included some 1960s spy entertainment, has passed away at the age of 75.

Ms. Provine appeared in various things, including It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. But for our purposes, we feel it’s worth noting two credits.

One, she appeared in the second-season opener of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. which was titled “Alexander the Greater Affair” (with the “The” that was used in most MFU episode titles). It was re-edited into the U.N.C.L.E. movie One Spy Too Many.

She was also starred as a British agent working along side American agent Mike Connors trying to foil a madman trying to take over the world in 1966’s Kiss The Girls And Make Them Die (with a plot and locations that seem awfully famiar to those who’ve viewed Moonraker, the 1979 007 film).

Here’s that trailer:

  1. I was hoping she would appear at a convention at some point. She was also Roger’s co-star in “The Alaskans”.

  2. RIP – Dorothy Provine, 75, played the sole character who didn’t care about finding the buried treasure in “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.” When she retired & moved to Seattle few knew she was once a star. She didn’t care about that either. http://urdead2me.wordpress.com/2010/04/25/rip-dorothy-provine/
