Neva Patterson

I just watched An Affair to Remember (Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr). Two Five-0 veterans appeared, as well: Richard Denning, who was, of course, Governor Paul Jameson in all twelve seasons, and Neva Patterson, who portrayed Dolly Simmons, headmistress of the girls' reformatory, Hale Maluhia, and personal friend of Steve McGarrett, in “For Old Times Sake” (Season 12).

Miss Patterson (1920-2010) began acting on Broadway in the late 1940s and made her mark in The Seven-Year Itch. She went on to appear as computer expert Miss Warriner in Desk Set (1955) and as wealthy heiress Lois Clark, would be-fiancee of Nickie Ferrante (Cary Grant) in An Affair to Remember (1957). She also appeared in several hundred television episodes throughout her six-decades-long career, invariably playing strong women, quite often of prominent social standing.

I saw "An Affair to Remember" a couple of years ago. Richard Denning was so handsome!
