Known from the Billy Wilder film
US actress Pamela Tiffin dies at 78
Hollywood is losing a 1960s movie greatness. Pamela Tiffin worked in her career with, among others, US star Paul Newman and the director Billy Wilder. She was once nominated twice for the Golden Globe.
US actress Pamela Tiffin has died. This is reported by various US sites, including “The Hollywood Reporter”, citing a friend. The cause of death is unknown. She became known for her role in the comedy “One, Two, Three” (1961) by US director Billy Wilder. As Scarlett Hazeltine, she played alongside US star James Cagney and German actor Horst Buchholz.
At the next Golden Globe Awards ceremony in 1962, Pamela Tiffin was nominated twice: as best supporting actress for “One, Two, Three” and as best young actress for her film debut in the drama “Summer and Smoke”. Pamela Tiffin worked with Burt Lancaster in the western “The Hallelujah Trail” in 1965 and with Paul Newman in the 1966 film “Harper”.
In the late 1960s she caused a stir with “Playboy” recordings. In 1974 she ended her film career, her last appearance in 1986 in the Italian television film “Rose”. In 2003 she appeared again as herself in the documentary “Abel Ferrara: Not Guilty” about the eponymous, now 69-year-old US filmmaker. Pamela Tiffin was married to Edmondo Danon for the second time since 1974. The two had two daughters.
