The Poseidon Adventure actress Carol Lynley dies at the age of 77

Carol Lynley died at the age of 77 in her home in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The actress was best known for the 1972 disaster movie The Poseidon Adventure which also starred Gene Hackman and Shelley Winters. The film, about the sinking of a cruise ship after being hit by a tsunami, was a box-office dynamo.

The New York native came to fame in the 1960s as a blonde bombshell as she starred in such hits as Return To Peyton Place (1961) and Under The Yum Yum Tree (1963).

She added that Carol 'loved the industry and she was equally a great fan of the movies.'

Jill said: 'She loved working in film as much as she loved going to the movies. I saw everything as a child with her,' Selsman added.


LOVED the Poseidon Adventure. RIP, Ms. Lynley.

1. My little girlfriend at the time

used to brag that she had the same measurements as Carol Lynley. (She got them from the Playboy spread Lynley did back then). She kind of looked like her too.
