Educated at Glendale College and Immaculate Heart College, Angeline Brown acquired her professional name Angie Dickinson when she married college football star Gene Dickinson. A beauty contest winner, Dickinson entered films with an unbilled bit in the 1954 Warner Bros. musical Lucky Me. Her earliest films consisted mostly of "B" Westerns (at one point, she dubbed in actress Sarita Montiel's voice in 1957's Run of the Arrow) and television (Dickinson was rather nastily murdered in very first episode of Mike Hammer). She moved to the A-list when selected by Howard Hawks to play the female lead in Rio Bravo (1958). The film gave Dickinson ample opportunity to display her celebrated legs, which, for publicity purposes, were insured by Lloyd's of London. She went on to star in films both famous and forgettable: one of the roles for which she is best remembered is as the mistress of gangster Ronald Reagan (!) in The Killers (1964). In 1974, Dickinson jump-started her flagging career as the star of the TV adventure series Police Woman, which lasted four seasons. After years of avoiding nude scenes, Dickinson again went au naturel in Brian De Palma's Dressed to Kill (1980), although most of the skin shots were performed by a body double. Angie Dickinson was once married to composer Burt Bacharach.
Had a ten-year, on-again/off-again relationship with Frank Sinatra.
Ranked #42 on "Playboy" Magazines "100 Sexiest Stars of the Century," January 1999.
Said she initially declined to play the ill-fated, sexually frustrated Kate Miller in "Dressed To Kill" because she felt her role on the "Police Woman" TV series had made her into something of a role model, but director Brian De Palma eventually persuaded her to accept the role.
