Biography

American actress Diane McBain was first presented to the paying public as a Warner Bros. contract starlet. Evidently built up as Warner's answer to Carroll Baker, the young blonde actress appeared in such films as Ice Palace (1960), Parrish (1961) and Claudelle Inglish (1963) (in the title role), and also spent two years in the role of "girl Friday" Daphne Dutton on the Warners TV private-eye series Surfside Six (1960-62). McBain also did box-office duty with Elvis Presley in Spinout (1966). Her career petered out towards the late '60s, with such negligible roles as the head of a biker gang in The Miniskirt Mob (1968), but Diane McBain managed to survive into the '80s, when she played the recurring role of Claire Howard on General Hospital. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
