Andrew Duggan and Elizabeth Baur, 1968
December 1, 1947 |
Los Angeles, California
Elizabeth Baur was born on 1 December 1947 in Los Angeles, California. Juanita Gless, her great-grandmother, was an early settler in California who came from the Basque area of France. Actress Sharon Gless is Baur's first cousin.
Her father, Jack Baur, was a veteran casting director at 20th Century Fox, and did not want his daughter in the industry. She attended Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles and was a student at Los Angeles Valley College "for a year and three-quarters."
Baur succeeded Barbara Anderson in portraying a female detective on NBC television's Ironside, as her character of Fran Belding replaced Anderson's Eve Whitfield. In 1972, she told a reporter: "They interviewed 100 girls for this role. Then they had 14 of us come in and read for the part. Finally they gave seven of us screen tests. I was really surprised they chose me." Two years later, she said, "Officer Fran Belding is the hardest part I've ever had to play, because she's so straight, so normal."
