Colleen Townsend (born December 21, 1928 in Glendale, California) is an American actress, author and humanitarian.
Townsend began a film career in 1944, appearing in minor roles in several films. By 1946, she was appearing on the cover of magazines, and in 1947 was signed to a contract by 20th Century Fox. She was the subject of a cover story for Life in 1948, which discussed the way in which major studios groomed and manufactured their stars, using Townsend's story as an example. The studio created a photographic calendar for her, to "put [her] face in every home, office and barracks in America all year around." Hedda Hopper was also quoted as saying that Townsend was "going places."(Wikipedia)
