Julie London on Television
1940s/1950s 1960s 1970s
Julie London's diverse television career spanned over 30 years, from 1945 to 1978. She's perhaps ultimately most famous TV-wise for playing "Nurse Dixie McCall" in the 1972 - 1977 series "Emergency!", but initially made her mark in the '50s and '60s with her guest appearances in various Westerns, dramas, and variety and talk shows, as well as with her own musical specials. (From the late 1960s through the '70s, her television repertoire also included numerous game-show appearances.)
