Multi-talented singer, dancer and actress Joey Heatherton (born Davenie Johanna Heatherton in 1944) is best remembered as a young sexpot known for her "Lolita" image. The daughter of song-and-dance man Ray Heatherton (1909-1997) and Davenie Ross Watson Heatherton, Joey, who received ballet training as a child, began her career in entertainment on the stage. She received her first national exposure as a regular on The Perry Como Show, where her role as a young co-ed who has a crush on the star propelled her into an acting career. She began guest starring on such TV series as Route 66, The Virginian, Mr. Novak and The Nurses as well as performing as herself on a long list of variety and talk shows, and Heatherton also appeared in several made-for-TV movies. Heatherton, who made her first feature film, Twilight of Honor (for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe for Most Promising Newcomer - Female), in 1963, was later seen on the big screen in Where Love Has Gone (1964), My Blood Runs Cold (1965), Bluebeard (1972), The Happy Hooker Goes to Washington (1977), The Perils of P.K. (1986), Cry-Baby (1990) and Reflections of Evil (2002). She also found success with her recordings, and Heatherton displayed both her song and dance talents on several USO tours with Bob Hope.
