She was the sultry film starlet-turned-torch singer-come-TV actress whose dusky
alto captivated a generation. Julie London was "discovered" while running a
department store elevator in Hollywood.
Just three years earlier the bountiful 15 year old, born Julie Peck to her
parents, a song-and-dance duo of the vaudeville era, was singing on her parents'
radio show. When she started working in the movies in the 1940s, she changed her
name to London. During the course of a celebrated career in acting and music,
she made more than 30 albums.
The sultry-voiced actress, who was once married to "Dragnet" producer-star Jack
Webb, had a hit record with the 1950s single "Cry Me a River." The single

professional album debut, the best-selling Julie Is Her Name, from Liberty. An

London appeared in nearly two dozen motion pictures during the 1940s and '50s;
she was best known to TV audiences as nurse Dixie McCall on the 1970s hospital
drama "Emergency!" She was hired on "Emergency!" by Webb," her then-former

who composed the iconic musical hit "Route 66" played a doctor on the show and
it was he who helped sign Julie to the Liberty record label.
Describing her smoky vocal style, London once said, "It's only a thimbleful
of a voice, and I have to use it close to a microphone. But it is a kind of
over-smoked voice, and it automatically sounds intimate." A style
inimitable, in our estimation.
