Arlene Dahl, 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' star and Lorenzo Lamas' mother, dood by 96

Haar seun, akteur Lorenzo Lamas, posted on Facebook, sê, “Sy was die mees positiewe invloed op my lewe. Ek sal haar lag onthou, haar vreugde, haar waardigheid terwyl sy die uitdagings wat sy in die gesig gestaar het, navigeer. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest.

Born in Minneapolis, Dahl started out as a model and worked in theater before coming to Hollywood in 1946. She was briefly under contract at Warner Bros., then signed with MGM.
