Noreen Nash (born Norabelle Jean Roth, April 4, 1924) is a retired American film and television actress.
Nash was born in Wenatchee, Washington. Her parents were Albert and Gail Roth.
A 1945 newspaper article reported Nash's being helped by actress Paulette Goddard. Goddard, the article said, was "sponsoring the career of shapely, brunette, blue-eyed and very beautiful Noreen Nash." The article added that Nash's screen tests at Paramount Pictures were "arranged through the instigation of Paulette. As a result Noreen was signed to a term contract."
Uncredited in her first movies, Nash eventually landed a role in the 1945 film The Southerner. She continued to appear in films and television shows throughout the late '40s and 1950s. Nash had leading roles in 1947's The Big Fix, about gamblers trying to rig a basketball game, and the crime drama Assigned to Danger.
Some of the television series in which Nash appeared include Hopalong Cassidy, The Abbott and Costello Show, The Lone Ranger, Dragnet, 77 Sunset Strip and The Dick Powell Show. She retired from acting in 1962.
Nash is also noted for having written the novel By Love Fulfilled in 1980.
