FactWas engaged to James Dean in 1952 and later wrote a book about their love called "Dizzy and Jimmy.".

Liz Sheridan was born in New York City on January 5, 1927. Her parents were both vaudeville performers, and she made her stage debut at the age of three. Sheridan began her film career in the early 1940s, appearing in a number of bit parts. In 1950, she was cast as Jerry Lewis’ girlfriend in the film “The Bellboy”. The two actors developed a close friendship off-screen, and Sheridan would go on to appear in a number of Lewis’ films over the next decade.

In the 1960s, Sheridan began appearing on television, guest-starring on such popular shows as “The Twilight Zone” and “The Beverly Hillbillies”. She also had a recurring role on the sitcom “I Dream of Jeannie” as Mrs. Bellows, the mother of Barbara Eden’s character. In the 1970s, Sheridan retired from acting and opened a successful interior design business.

Sheridan was married twice, first to actor William Ross and then to businessman Robert Hirschfeld. She had one child, a daughter named Lisa. Sheridan passed away on January 21, 2014 at the age of 87.
