Dorothy Provine, Flapper and Outlaw, Dies
Dorothy Provine, a stunningly beautiful actress who starred as the title outlaw in "The Bonnie Parker Story" (1958) and then as a flapper showgirl in the short-lived TV drama "The Roaring Twenties," died April 25. She was 75 and lived in Washington state.
She has an elegant way with the ballad "Tea for Two" and does a credible Al Jolson interpretation in the TV show.
Ms. Provine also appeared in the films "Riot in Juvenile Prison" (1959), "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" (1963) and "Never a Dull Moment" (1968) before retiring from show business.
She married the director Robert Day and was called a "recluse" by her local paper. Her husband told the Kitsap Sun of Bremerton, Wash., "She was very reserved. We really didn't socialize very much."
