Felicia Farr (born October 4, 1932) is a former American actress[1] and model.

Life and career[edit]

Born Olive Dines, Felicia Farr appeared in several modeling photo shoots and advertisements during the 1950s and 1960s. Her earliest screen appearances date from the mid-fifties and included the Westerns Jubal (1956) and 3:10 to Yuma (1957), both starring Glenn Ford and The Last Wagon (1956) starring Richard Widmark.

Lee Farr was her first husband, a marriage which produced a daughter, Denise Farr Gordon, who became the wife of actor Don Gordon. Farr's second husband was the film star Jack Lemmon; they married in 1962, while Lemmon was filming the comedy Irma La Douce in Paris, and remained married until his death in 2001.[2]

Farr's later films include the bawdy Billy Wilder farce Kiss Me, Stupid (1964) with Dean Martin and Ray Walston as her husband, a role originally intended for Lemmon; Walter Matthau's daughter-in-law in Kotch (1971, Lemmon's only film as director); the Don Siegel bank-heist caper Charley Varrick (1973) with Matthau; plus more than thirty television series appearances on The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Bonanza, Ben Casey, Burke's Law and many others.

During her marriage to Jack Lemmon, Farr gave birth to a daughter, Courtney, in 1966.[2] She is also the stepmother of Lemmon's son, actor and author Chris Lemmon.
