Arlene Dahl (born 11 Aug. 1928) is an American movie actress and former MGM contract star, who achieved notability during the 1950ies.
She is the mother of actor Lorenzo Lamas.
Arlene Carol Dahl was born in 1928 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and is of Norwegian descent.
After graduating from Washburn High School, she held various jobs, including performing in a local drama group and briefly working as a model for department stores.
According to her classmates, Arlene Dahl's mother was involved in the theater. As a child she took elocution and dancing lessons and acted in local amateur theater. She was active in theatrical events at Margaret Fuller Elementary School, Ramsey Junior High School and Washburn Senior High School. She also attended the University of Minnesota for a short time.
Dahl was voted the Rheingold Beer Girl of 1946. She began her acting career in 1947, at the age of 19.
She reached the peak of her popularity and success in the 1950s. Some of her best films include: Reign of Terror (1949), Three Little Words (1950), Woman's World (1954), Slightly Scarlet (1956), and Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959).
Dahl met actor Lex Barker in the early 1950s, and on April 16, 1951, Dahl and Barker wed. A year later she and Barker divorced, and Dahl would go on to marry another matinee idol, Fernando Lamas. Barker went on to marry Lana Turner.
In 1958 Dahl and Lamas had their only son, Lorenzo Lamas. Shortly after giving birth to Lorenzo, Dahl slowed and eventually ended her career as an actress, although she still appeared in movies and on television occasionally. Dahl would go on to work as a beauty columnist and as a writer.
She also founded her own business, Arlene Dahl Enterprises, which marketed lingerie and cosmetics. She eventually became an astrologer and wrote a syndicated column on the subject.
She posed semi-nude for Playboy magazine in December 1962.
