At first glance, it’s easy to see why she was one of the most beautiful and intriguing actresses ever to grace the screen. Andrea King has delighted generations of fans with her range and talent since the mid-1940s, when she catapulted to stardom in less than a year at Warner Bros. alongside some of the true heavyweights of the industry.

Though Andrea’s career fell short of the legendary status it seemed destined to reach, her many indelible performances continue to shine today thanks to television, home video and film festivals.

The proof is in her work … and the work is preserved for all time.

  1. Still waiting for “Hotel Berlin” to be cleaned up & put on DVD.

    Sigh . . .

  2. Andrea King is buried along with her husband in his family plot in Zion Episcopal Church, Charles Town, WV.

    Zion is a historic church, more (George) Washington family members buried here than any place other than Mount Vernon.

  3. Very true, Barbara! I remember Andrea had a large, blue-gray ceramic (at least I think it was, instead of china) serving plate and two dinner plates from Mount Vernon, owned by our first president during his time there. I was fascinated by them!

  4. As part of the 200th anniversary celebrations at Zion Episcopal Church in Charles Town, WV I am doing weekly a corkboard presentation about some aspect of Zion’s history. This week is Andrea King.

    I have several pictures of her for the display. She certainly was beautiful and looking at the stills from her movies, I think I remember her.

    Do you have the contact information for her daughter, Deborah Willis?

    Thank you

  5. I have removed the address and phone you published for Andrea’s daughter for the sake of privacy. Yes, that info is old now. I will send you an email to give you a current way to contact her.

    Thanks very much,

  6. Thank you for the lovely story I enjoyed reading it. I am from Hinsdale Illinois and my great Aunt Mary worked for Nat Willis’ parents from 1937 until 1972, as their cook & housekeeper. I am a year older than Deb Willis Callahan. I remember as a little girl visiting my Aunt or picking her up or returning her on a Sunday or after her day off. I do remember references to Andrea King & being shown the picture of her, a very beautiful woman and of Nat’s death about a year before his Mother’s….and swimming in the First Street house’s pool. They had an enormous amount of lily of the valley & Aunt Mary would pick the biggest bunch every year for my Mother’s May birthday present. If you want to, pass my email on to Deb.
    Thank you!

  7. Dear Mar Gee Farr,
    What a wonderful story and connection to the Willis family! I am happy to pass this on to Deb Callahan, along with your email address. I’m sure she will be delighted to see what you wrote. Thank you so much for sharing it with this website, and for taking the time to reach out.
    All the best to you,

  8. Had the great pleasure of meeting Andrea,Belle and Deb in the mid 80’s I was employed at the time with Vista del Sol. Enjoyed the conversations with Andrea about her career and stories about Bell and her neighbor Mr Edison ! My regards to Deb

  9. Wonderful, Anthony! Thanks for writing and sharing that memory! I will pass on your well-wishes to Andrea’s daughter Deb when I see her later this week. You knew Belle at the very end of her amazing life. All three ladies were/are pretty great.
