Jill Townsend

Jill Townsend is a wonderful actress from the 1960s and 70s. She is perhaps best known for her role as Dulcey Coopersmith on the 90 minute CBS western Cimarron Strip. I originally had sought out an episode of that show which featured Tuesday Weld in her final television guest appearance, but was pleasantly surprised to discover Jill Townsend when I sat down to watch it. I went on to check out some of her other small screen guest star roles and have been consistently satisfied. She did some really fun episodes of The Wild Wild West and The Girl from U.N.C.L.E., and displayed some incredibly graceful aging in an episode of Space: 1999. Jill Townsend appeared in some other famous works, like Alfie Darling (the not so well remembered sequel to Alfie), Sitting Target (with Oliver Reed), The Awakening (with Charlton Heston) and the distinguished miniseries Poldark...but I haven't gotten around to watching them yet.
