Faye Margaret Emerson (July 8, 1917 – March 9, 1983) was an American film actress. She was born in tiny Elizabeth in Allen Parish in south central Louisiana. In 1944, she played one of her more memorable roles as Zachary Scott's ex in The Mask of Dimitrios. In 1948, she made her move to television, acting in various anthology series, such as The Chevrolet Tele-Theatre, The Philco Television Playhouse and Goodyear Television Playhouse. She also made numerous guest appearances on various variety shows and game shows. Although the Faye Emerson Show on CBS only lasted one season, it gave her wide exposure because her time slot immediately followed the CBS Evening News and alternated weeknights with the popular The Perry Como Show. Emerson hosted or appeared on so many talk shows—usually wearing long, low-cut gowns—and game shows such as I've Got a Secret that she was known as "The First Lady of Television". The glamorous Emerson was so popular in the early 1950s, it was rumored that the newly created Emmy Award was named after her. She was once married to Elliott Roosevelt, son of U.S. 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 moved to Spain and spent the rest of her life in seclusion. She died of stomach cancer in Deya, Majorca in 1983 at the age of sixty-five.
