Who doesn't love Ann-Margaret? We look back at some of her career highlights.
Born Ann-Margaret Olsson, the Swedish-born triple-threat was often dismissed early in her career as just a "sex kitten"—but after four decades of success in film, television and music, she proved her critics wrong.
She made her film debut alongside acting powerhouse Bette Davis, playing her daughter in Frank Capra's Pocketful of Miracles (1961). That same year she released her first album, And Here She Is, Ann-Margret. But her big break came two years later, in 1963, when she appeared in the film adaptation of the hit Broadway play, Bye Bye Birdie, with Dick Van Dyke. Following the success of the film, she later serenaded then-President John F. Kennedy for his 46th birthday.
By the time she took on sexy roles in Viva Las Vegas (1964) with Elvis Presley and The Cincinnati Kid (1965) alongside Steve McQueen, she was a bona fide star.
Today, on her 76th birthday, we celebrate the Oscar-, Grammy- and Emmy-nominated dynamo with some of our favourite highlights from her expansive career.
