  • Fifty years ago today, April 22, 1966, the final episode of The Farmer's Daughter aired on ABC television. Debuting on September 20, 1963, The Farmer's Daughter ran for three seasons.
    Unlike many of the stories we find here at Television Vanguard, this one is a sad one - it ended in the death of a truly lovely, captivating young woman, young actress, far, far too soon.
    Inger Stevens was a fine actress and striking looking woman - in that era, or any era, she simply had a remarkable serene beauty, both inside and out. The words heavenly and angelic are not words often used to describe someone, but they could apply to Inger Stevens.
    Her untimely death was such a sad event, heartbreaking, that years, decades, later, her death still leaves a great sense of sadness. However, better to remember her here with high regard and esteem and know that she is resting in peace now, in hopefully a better place.
    Inger was born on October 18, 1934, and passed away on April 30, 1970, at the young age of 35. As this ET/Mary Hart File report (from February 16, 1990), she did countless movies (Hang 'Em High, 5 Card Stud, A Guide for the Married Man, The New Interns, The Buccaneer), stage, and television (The Farmer's Daughter and guest roles on Bonanza, Checkmate, Hong Kong, Adventures in Paradise, Route 66).
    We remember her here at Television Vanguard with great admiration and respect and pray she found peace... may she rest in peace.

    Thanks for ur reply; &, offer to continue it later & re-review now.
    I'm a researcher & admirer w/ the highest standards of integrity; &, never draw conclusions to a completion with out evaluating all possible & available evidence; &, information. As such the end of this piece & all else I can find on Stevens would help me put to rest some burning unresolved questions of mine wrapped up in my admiration of her. So working out those questions would serve to resolve some inner questions of my own self.
    I am concerned w/i.e.: unsure of suicide; not clear why 'twould be; not sure who else was there that night; & why, nor sure how said questions are answered by others satisfactorily; not sure what info is available that might answer said questions; not sure if it even was an accident vs. suicide or a intentional act of malice; &, know that others have tried dealing with these issues & have done so for themselves & want to share in that process to better resolve them for me.
    Thx,
    A.

      Mary Hart: "It is said Stevens was obsessed by her father's portrayal of Scrooge on stage when she was a child - she spend her life trying to gain his approval in vain."

      Anthony Quinn: "This is a case of Hollywood... and when I say Hollywood, I mean the old Hollywood that destroys people who don't belong in this business."

      Mary Hart: "Stevens died soon after of a barbiturate overdose, which may have been an accident, but is not known for certain. In either case, she became of victim of the town in which she worked."

      Ms. Stevens' assistant: "She was dating Burt Reynolds and she told me he was fun and made her laugh. I asked if she was falling for him, and she replied 'not yet.'

      Hello - thank you for your comment and interest. We will try to show the remainder of this video clip on Inger Stevens later this year, or in the spring. There is very little left of this clip from Entertainment Tonight that we didn't show ... perhaps about 30 seconds. It includes a final comment from Anthony Quinn, who is trying to be as honest and open as he can when he was interviewed about Inger. However, upon seeing the clip, we here at Television Vanguard thought the final 30 seconds or so seemed a bit harsh in her memory, and we felt best to not include the final few seconds. We'll review the full clip again, and we'll try our best to show the entire additional 30 seconds if we can.Thank you again for your viewing and commenting on the clip -we appreciate it. Above all else, we want to pay tribute to Ms. Stevens in the best possible way, and have our viewers remember Inger at her very best. A lovely, wonderful woman and actress. -TVanguard staff
