Angie Dickinson Biography

Angie Dickinson specialized in playing smart, sexy, tough-minded women, and is most famous as Sgt. 'Pepper' Anderson in the TV series Police Woman (1974-78). Her best-known movie role may be one of her earliest: as the plucky dance hall dame Feathers in Rio Bravo (1959) with John Wayne and Dean Martin. Her other films include The Killers (1964, with Ronald Reagan in his last feature role), Thief (1971, not the 1981 James Caan film of the same name) and Pay It Forward (2000, with Helen Hunt). She played Frank Sinatra's estranged wife in the heist spoof Ocean's Eleven (1960) and had a cameo in the 2001 remake, which featured Julia Roberts in Dickinson's old role.

Early life
Dickinson, the second of four daughters, was born Angeline Brown (called "Angie" by family and friends) in Kulm, North Dakota, the daughter of Fredericka (nee Hehr) and Leo Henry Brown.Her family is of German descent and she was raised Roman Catholic.Her father was a small-town newspaper publisher and editor, working on the Kulm Messenger and the Edgeley Mail.In 1942, her family moved to Burbank, California, where she attended Bellarmine-Jefferson High School, graduating in 1947 at 15 years of age. The previous year, she had won the Sixth Annual Bill of Rights essay contest. She studied at Glendale Community College and in 1954 graduated from Immaculate Heart College with a degree in business. Taking a cue from her publisher father, she had intended to be a writer. While a student from 1950–52, she worked as a secretary at Lockheed Air Terminal in Burbank (now Bob Hope Airport) and in a parts factory. She became Angie Dickinson in 1952, when she married football player Gene Dickinson.

Career
Early career
Dickinson entered a beauty pageant in 1953 and placed second. The exposure brought her to the attention of a television industry producer, who asked her to consider a career in acting. She studied the craft and a few years later was approached by NBC to guest-star on a number of variety shows, including The Colgate Comedy Hour. She soon met Frank Sinatra, who became a lifelong friend. She later was cast as Sinatra's wife in the film Ocean's 11.

On New Year's Eve 1954, Dickinson made her television acting debut in an episode of Death Valley Days. This led to other roles in such productions as Matinee Theatre (eight episodes), Buffalo Bill Jr., City Detective, It's a Great Life (two episodes), Gray Ghost, General Electric Theater, Broken Arrow, The People's Choice (twice), Meet McGraw (twice), Northwest Passage, Gunsmoke, The Virginian, Tombstone Territory, Cheyenne, and The Restless Gun.

In 1956, Dickinson was cast as Ann Drew, who slips a gun to her jailed husband, Harry (John Craven), a former associate of the Jesse James gang, in the ABC/Desilu western series, The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, starring Hugh O'Brian. In the story line, Harry vowed never to go to prison and was shot to death while escaping.

Personal life

Her maiden name was Angeline Brown; she was married to Gene Dickinson, a former football player, from 1952 to 1960. Close friends with John Kenneth Galbraith and Catherine Galbraith her extensive visiting them and touring when he was American Ambassador to India is amply recounted in Galbraith memoirs including Ambassador's Journal and A Life in Our Times.

She married Burt Bacharach in 1965. They remained a married couple for 15 years, though late in their marriage, they had a period of separation where each dated other people.

Their daughter, Lea Nikki, known as Nikki, arrived a year after they were married. Born three months prematurely, Nikki suffered from chronic health problems, including visual impairment. She was later diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. Burt composed the music of the song Nikki for their fragile young daughter, and Angie rejected many roles to focus on caring for their daughter. Nikki's parents eventually placed her at the Wilson Center, a psychiatric residential treatment facility for adolescents located in Faribault, Minnesota,[12] where she remained for nine years. Later, Nikki studied geology at California Lutheran University, but her poor eyesight prevented her from pursuing a career in that field.
