Faye Emerson (July 8, 1917 - March 9, 1983) was an American film actress and television host. She is remembered as an actress in many Warner Bros. films beginning in 1941. She was born in Elizabeth, Louisiana. In 1944 she played one of her more memorable roles as Zachary Scott's ex in The Mask of Dimitrios. She gained her greatest fame on television on the Faye Emerson Show on CBS. Emerson hosted or appeared on so many talk shows (usually wearing long, low-cut gowns) and game shows that she was known as "The First Lady of Television". The glamorous Emerson was so popular it's rumored that the Emmy Award was named after her. She was once married to Elliott Roosevelt, son of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Emerson was later married to band leader Skitch Henderson in the 1950s. Once a Hollywood starlet enjoying the show business spotlight, the wealthy Emerson spent the end of her long life as a recluse. She died of stomach cancer in Spain in 1983.
