One of four children (two older brothers, one younger sister) born to American missionaries, Jayne Meadows (née Jane Cotter) was born September 27, 1919, in China. The family returned to the US in the early 1930s wherein Jayne was forced to learn the English language, speaking Chinese and other foreign languages at the time. Settling in Sharon, Connecticut, her father, Rev. Francis James Meadows Cotter, was appointed rector of Christ Church.Jayne would develop an early interest in acting, making her Broadway debut with the comedy “Spring Again” (1941), followed by “Another Love Story” (1943), “The Odds on Mrs. Oakley” (1944), “Many Happy Returns” and “Kiss Them for Me” (1945). This led to a post-WWII, MGM contract in which her icy glare and imposing stance frequently made her the perfect manipulating “other woman” in such “B” heavy drama as Undercurrent (1946), Lady in the Lake (1946), Dark Delusion (1947), Enchantment (1948), The Fat Man (1951) and as Michal in the biblical film David and Bathsheba (1951). She occasionally was featured in lighter feature film fare as well, including Song of the Thin Man (1947) and The Luck of the Irish (1948).Not satisfactorily moving up the credits ladder in films as she hoped, Jayne sought work elsewhere in the early 1950’s, especially in the new medium of TV. She became one of Hollywood’s more glittery personalities on TV and variety programs, and a sparkling guest panelist on such popular TV game shows as “The Name’s the Same, “Masquerade Party, “What’s My Line,” “To Tell the Truth” and “Password.” At one point, she was a regular member of the celebrity panel on I’ve Got a Secret (1952).Divorced from film and TV writer Milton Krims after six years, Jayne met her witty match when she married actor/comedian Steve Allen in 1954. They formed an extremely strong personal and professional relationship which would encompass stage (“Love Letters”, in which they co-starred on and off for 11 years), film (College Confidential (1960), and especially TV (Meeting of Minds (1977)). Jayne supported Steve as a regular/guest on many of his comedy series ventures, including The Steve Allen Show (1951), The New Steve Allen Show (1961), The Steve Allen Playhouse (1962) and The Steve Allen Comedy Hour (1967). They appeared as themselves in the film The Player (1992) they did not appear as themselves in the amusing TV movie Now You See It, Now You Don’t (1968) and the all-star TV version of Alice in Wonderland (1985). Jayne Meadows was born on September 27, 1919 in Wuhan, China. Jayne Meadows died on April 26, 2015 at the age of 95 years. Check below for more deets about Jayne Meadows.
