Barbara Parkins made her film debut in the 1961 British crime drama 20,000 Eyes. She is usually remembered for her role as the much-married Betty Harrington in the American TV series Peyton Place, which ran from 1964 through 1969. She reprised Betty for a 1985 “reunion” TV movie, and played a variation of the character in the 1967 feature, Valley of the Dolls.
