Carol Lynley (born February 13, 1942) is an American actress and former child model.


Avant ses premiers pas au cinéma pour le film de Disney Lueur dans la forêt (1958), le numéro du 22 avril 1957 de Life consacre cinq pages à la comédienne alors âgée de 15 ans.

Débuts fulgurants pour cette adorable blonde aux yeux bleus avec Robert Aldrich dans El Perdido ou Otto Preminger dans Le Cardinal. Elle incarne Alison McKenzie dans Les lauriers sont coupés ou la célèbre blonde platine dans Harlow.

Bunny Lake a disparu (d'Otto Preminger) reste sa meilleure création.

Elle fut même pressentie pour être l'héroïne de Bonnie and Clyde (rôle dévolu à Faye Dunaway).
« Noyée » dans un parterre de vedettes, L'Aventure du Poséidon est son chant du cygne. Ensuite, elle enchaîne une série de films B (souvent d'horreur) et a été la guest star de nombreux téléfilms et séries télévisées (entre autres l'épisode des Envahisseurs : « Les défenseurs »). Et elle a également joué dans plusieurs épisodes de L'île Fantastique.

Elle a posé nue pour le numéro de mars 1965 de Playboy, dans un article intitulé « Carol Lynley Grows Up ».

Eddie Marino (Robert Forster) is a factory worker in New York City. He has a wife named Vickie (Rutanya Alda) and an eight-year-old son named Scott. Eddie's friend and co-worker, Nick (Fred Williamson), and two other co-workers, Burke and Ramon, have formed a secret vigilante group because Nick and the group are fed up with the crime in their neighborhoods. Nick and his group are also tired of the police, because the police always fail to protect people. Nick's "group" has support of various residents of the neighborhood who indirectly help them. In one example, a local thug stalks and chases a young woman to a rooftop of an apartment building where the thug robs and then kills her. An old lady who witnesses the thug says nothing to the police, but points out the thug to Nick and his group the next day. Nick and his friends forcibly grab the thug off the streets and place him in their van and drive away. The thug is later found dead in a vacant lot with all of his arms and legs broken and his head bashed in.

A nun returning from a sabbatical is met at a bus station by two of her colleagues. En route to their convent their car breaks down on a desert road and they decide to flag down a passing motorist. Meanwhile 2 escaped convicts have abducted a local businessman's niece with a view to collecting a ransom, only to have the woman fall on her head and die while attempting to flee the abandoned house they are holed up in. Larry, ( Majors) the kidnapper under whose watch the victim died, passes the nuns in their disabled Plymouth Valiant and decides to stop. The nuns mistake him for a helpful motorist and he tows them with his Volkswagen Type II to his hideout (in the opposite direction from Victorville where repair facilities would be accessible). The nuns soon learn their fate and are held hostage in a locked room with boards nailed over the windows. The kidnappers devise a plan to get the ransom money from the rich uncle (who is unaware his niece is dead) by having one of the nuns pose as the dead girl. Larry orders Eddie ( Conrad) to take Sister Ellen ( Nettleton) to a wig shop and to a phone booth that she might call her convent and give false information to explain their not showing up. Eddie is something of an unwitting party, not wishing to commit further crimes and at one point directs the hostages to hide and tells Larry they escaped earlier. Eventually the captives are discovered hiding in a closet by Larry after which a commotion occurs and he is killed by his own gun. Eddie feels forced to take Sister Ellen hostage and attempts to flee by stealing a light aircraft but before he get away there is a climactic scene on the runway.
