Dorothy Provine, an actress who was equally at home playing a blonde bombshell or the girl next door, died April 25 from emphysema at Hospice of Kitsap County in Bremerton, Wash. She was 75.

Provine was probably best-known for her role as Pinky Pinkham in "The Roaring '20s," a Chicago-set period crime drama that ran on ABC from 1960-62, in which she played a leggy flapper in the fictitious Charleston Club in New York City, and for starring roles in 'The Bonnie Parker Story' (1958) and Stanley Kramer's 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World' (1963).
