Biography and Career
Tina Louise was born as Tina Blacker in New York City. She was raised by her mother, Betty Horn, one of the beautiful fashion model of America of that time. She attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. When she was 17, Louise began studying acting, singing and dancing.
Tina was offered modeling jobs during her early acting years and finally she appeared on the cover of several pinup magazines such as Adam, Sir! and Modern Man. Her later pictorials for Playboy in May 1958 and April 1959 were arranged by Columbia Pictures studio in an effort to further promote the young actress.
Louise made her Hollywood film debut in 1958 in God's Little Acre. She became an in-d
emand leading lady for major stars like Robert Taylor, Richard Widmark and Robert Ryan, often playing somber roles quite unlike the glamorous pinup photographs and Playboy pictorials she had become famous for in the late 1950s.
Louise made four record albums, two for Concert Hall, and two for Urania Record. By far, the most sought-after of these is the 1957 album It's Time For Tina at Concert Hall 1521.
Louise was married to radio and TV announcer/interviewer Les Crane, with whom she has one daughter, Caprice Crane born in 1974. It has been her passion to help young students gain not only literary skills, but also confidence, self-determination and proof of their own potential. She has written two books: Sunday: A Memoir 1997 and When I Grow Up in 2007.
The latter is a children's book that inspires children to believe they can become whatever they choose through creative and humorous comparisons of animal kingdom achievements. Her second children's book was published in Fall 2009.
