Biography and Career

Born Karen Kay Sharpe to Kirk Howard and Dorothy Howard in 1934, Karen Sharpe was put into ballet shoes as a young girl. Her initial move to California had her harbouring dreams of being a professional ice skater, but the lure of Hollywood gave her a different destiny.

She started training in theater in her teenage years, and got her first screen appearance at the age of 16, in the film 'The Sniper'. This first appearance saw her only delivering 3 lines while sitting in a drugstore stool. At the time, Karen did not have the opportunity of meeting the filmmaker, Stanley Kramer, who would turn out to be her future husband.

Failing her test at MGM and Universal, her agent promoted her as a cover girl magazines like the 'Cosmopolitan' and 'Pageant', and finally got her noticed. Moving on, Karen appeared in 'Holiday for Sinners' (1952) for MGM, 'The High and the Mighty' (1954), and 'Man In The Vault' (1956), all starring opposite Bill Campbell. Karen also starred in 'Army Bound' (1952), 'Strange Fascination' (1952) and most notably, 'Bomba and the Jungle Girl' (1952), which is a cult classic for Karen.

Karen moved on to the small screen, with multiple episodes of live programs like 'Hallmark Hall of Fame' (1951), the 'General Electric Theater' (1953), 'Climax' (1954), 'Matinee Theatre' (1955), 'Playhouse 90' (1956), and 'Lux Playhouse' (1958).

Karen married Stanley Kramer on 1st September, 1966, after finishing the pilot of 'Valley of Mystery'. After marriage, Karen retired from her acting career and began assisting Stanley with film production, and in 2000, made her debut as a producer. Among her successful projects as producer, was a re-make of her husband's film, 'High Noon' (2000).
