RIP Carole Mathews

RIP Carole Mathews


SAG/AFTRA’s spring 2015 issue noted that American leading actress Carole Mathews  died in Murrieta, California on November 16, 2014. Born Jean Deifel on  September 13, 1920 in Montgomery, Illinois, she was signed to a Columbia Pictures contract in 1944 where she was generally limited to secondary roles, save for a few leading characters like Babs Arnold in the Columbia serial The Monster and the Ape. She went on to Paramount and Universal in the 1950s, where she could usually be found playing hard-boiled dames. Carole Mathews continued essaying character roles until her retirement in 1960.
