Joan Marshall (June 19, 1931 – June 28, 1992) was an American film and television actress.

Early life and career[edit]

She was born Joan Schrepfermann;[2] in Chicago where she was also raised. She began her career as a showgirl in Chicago clubs. After appearing as a dancer in the 1945 film The Chicago Kid and a part in the television series Have Gun – Will Travel in 1958, she moved to California the following year.[3] During the 1960s, Marshall frequently guest starred on various television series including Tales of Wells Fargo, Surfside 6, Hawaiian Eye, and The Jack Benny Program. She also appeared in the films Homicidal (using the stage name "Jean Arless") and Tammy and the Doctor opposite Sandra Dee and Peter Fonda.

Marshall also appeared in the 15 minute unaired pilot of The Munsters as Phoebe Munster (who strongly resembled Morticia Addams). Before the series was picked up, The Munsters was retooled and Marshall was replaced by actress Yvonne De Carlo.[4] Marshall continued guest starring in episodic television throughout the 1960s before her last role in the 1975 film Shampoo with Warren Beatty.

Personal life and death[edit]

Marshall was married three times and had two children, Steven and Sheri. She married director Hal Ashby in August 1969.[5] Two years after Ashby's death in 1988, she married executive Mel Bartfield.[6] The couple relocated to Jamaica where they remained until Marshall's death in 1992.[6]
