Biography[]

June Vincent was an American actress, probably best remembered for her role as 'Catherine Bennett' in the 1945 film "The Black Angel" that featured her in a major part along with actors Dan Duryea and Peter Lorre. Her role was originally intended for actress Ava Gardner, but she dropped out shortly after the casting announcement was released.

Born Dorothy June Smith, her father was a minister. At age seventeen, she went to New York City and began her career as a model with Harper's Bazaar where she became friends with actress Lauren Bacall. Vincent traveled to Hollywood with Bacall after appearing on Broadway and shooting a screen test for Universal.

In 1943 she signed a contract with Universal Studios, later moving on to Columbia Studios where she was cast in a string of mostly B movie westerns and crime melodramas. She made her first film appearance in "Honeymoon Lodge" (1943), followed by "Can't Help Singing" (1944), "Ladies Courageous" (1944), "That's the Spirit" (1945), "Shed No Tears" (1948), "The Creeper" (1948), "Song of Idaho" (1948), "Mary Ryan, Detective" (1949), "In a Lonely Place" (1950), "Secrets of Monte Carlo" (1951), "Colorado Sundown" (1951), "Night Without Sleep" (1952), "Clipped Wings" (1953, a Bowery Boys comedy with Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall), "City of Shadows" (1955), and "The Miracle of the Hills" (1959, her last film).

From the early 1950s until the 1970s she appeared on television, most popularly in five episodes of "Perry Mason." Other television appearances include "The Abbott and Costello Show," "Father Knows Best," "Have Gun - Will Travel," "Wanted: Dead or Alive," "Peter Gunn," "The Rifleman," "The Untouchables," "Hawaiian Eye," "Tales of Wells Fargo," "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," "The Andy Griffith Show," "That Girl," "The Virginian," "Bewitched," and "The F.B.I." In 1976 she made her final television appearance on "Maude," after which she retired from acting.

She was married to William M. Sterling. In her later years, she suffered from arthritis and Parkinson's disease. She died at the age of 88. Her ashes were scattered in Arapahoe Lake, Colorado.
