Early life and stage career

Wymore was born in Miltonvale, Kansas, and at the age of six she began touring with her family, who were vaudeville performers. By the time she reached adulthood, she was pretty and had a good singing voice. She auditioned in New York City for a part in Up in Central Park, in which she performed in 1947. She then performed in the Broadway musical Hold It!, for which she won a Theatre World Award for "Promising Actress". Following her performance in All for Love in 1949, she was contacted by Warner Bros., and she moved to Hollywood.

Film career

Wymore's first film appearance was in the 1950 film Tea for Two, starring Doris Day and Gordon MacRae. That same year she starred opposite Hollywood legend Errol Flynn in Rocky Mountain, with whom she would become romantically involved. The two married in October 1950. They moved to Jamaica, and had a daughter, Arnella Flynn, born in 1953. Their daughter would later become a fashion model in Europe. Wymore continued to act, appearing in several films over the next few years, to include I'll See You in My Dreams, her second film alongside Doris Day. She also guest starred as herself in the 1951 film Starlift, performing the song "Liza (All the Clouds'll Roll Away)." In 1953, she appeared alongside Virginia Mayo in She's Back on Broadway, and that same year she starred opposite Randolph Scott in The Man Behind the Gun. In 1955 she appeared with her husband Errol Flynn and Anna Neagle in the film version of King's Rhapsody. Flynn was already in a physical and mental decline by the time they had married.

Later career and personal life

Following King's Rhapsody, Wymore took a break from acting to care for her now ailing husband, and to better raise their daughter. However, due to Flynn's alcohol and drug addictions, the couple separated. They never divorced, however, and were still married at the time of his death in October 1959.

Following Flynn's death, Wymore returned to acting, mostly in stock musicals. She appeared in the musicals Carnival!, Guys and Dolls, Irma La Douce, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes during this period. She had a minor role in the original Ocean's Eleven in 1960. In 1965, she was cast in the short-lived soap opera Never Too Young, and in 1966 she appeared in the film Chamber of Horrors. Her last appearance was on the television series F Troop in 1967.

Flynn had left her a 2,000-acre (8.1 km2) coconut plantation in Jamaica, as well as a mansion and a cattle ranch. After her retirement she returned to Jamaica, where she opened a boutique and wicker furniture manufacturing business. She continues to be active in Flynn's estate, and often appears at dedications in his honor.[1]
