Ann-Margret biography (bio):
Ann-Margret is a five-time Golden Globe Award-winning, Academy Award, Emmy Award and Grammy nominated Swedish actress, singer and dancer.

Early life:
Ann-Margret was born Ann-Margret Olsson in Valsjbyn, Jmtland, Sweden to Anna Aronsson and Gustav Olsson, a native of rnskldsvik. She grew up in a small town 'of lumberjacks and farmers high up near the Arctic Circle'. Her father worked in the United States during his youth and immigrated back in 1942, working with the Johnson Electrical Company. Ann-Margret and her mother moved to the United States four years later and her mother worked as a funeral parlour receptionist after her father became too ill for his job. She grew up in Wilmette, Illinois and attended Northwestern University for a time but did not graduate. She became a naturalised citizen of the United States in 1949. She was discovered singing in a nightclub by George Burns. She was often referred to as a 'sex-kitten' and the 'female Elvis'.

Recording career:
Ann-Margret started recording for RCA in 1961 but her recording career was not as successful as her concurrent movie career. She had a sexy throaty singing voice and RCA attempted to capitalise on the 'female Elvis' comparison by having her record a version of 'Heartbreak Hotel' and other songs stylistically similar to Presley's. She scored the minor hit 'I Just Don't Understand' which entered the Billboard Top 40 in the third week of August 1961 and stayed six weeks, peaking at 17. Her only charting album was The Beauty and the Beard (1964) on which she was accompanied by trumpeter Al Hirt. Her contract with RCA ended in 1966.

Film career:
In 1961, Ann-Margret made her film dbut in Pocketful of Miracles, starring Bette Davis, Glenn Ford, and Hope Lange, a remake of the 1933 film Lady for a Day; both versions were directed by Frank Capra. She followed that role with the successful 1962 remake of Rodgers' and Hammerstein's musical State Fair. Her next starring role, as the all-American teenager in Bye Bye Birdie, made her a major star. When she filmed Viva Las Vegas with Elvis Presley the two began an affair that received considerable attention from the gossip columnists. The reports led to a showdown with Priscilla Presley, described by Priscilla in her 1985 book, Elvis and Me, including a discussion of Ann-Margret's attempt to "cut her off at the pass" with a press announcement that she and Elvis were engaged to be married. Although he ended the affair, Presley remained a friend and continued to send Ann-Margret flowers at the opening of each of her stage appearances until he died. Of all the Hollywood starlets with whom he had worked or had a relationship, Ann-Margret was the only one to attend his funeral.
In 1963, Ann-Margret guest-starred in an episode of The Flintstones, voicing "Ann-Margrock," an animated version of herself. Decades later, she recorded the theme song to the live-action film The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas in character as Ann-Margrock. The song she recorded was a modified version of the "Viva Las Vegas" theme.
Ann also co-starred along with friend Dean Martin in the spy spoof Murderer's Row (1966). In March 1966, Ann-Margret and entertainers Chuck Day and Mickey Jones teamed up for a USO tour to entertain U.S. servicemen in remote parts of Vietnam and other parts of Southeast Asia. She still has great affection for the veterans and refers to them as "my gentlemen." Ann-Margret, Day and Jones reunited in November 2005 for an encore of this tour for veterans and troops at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada.
In 1971, she starred in Mike Nichols's Carnal Knowledge, marking a significant change from her sex-kitten musical roles and garnering a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. The following year, while performing at Lake Tahoe, Nevada, she fell 22 feet from the stage and suffered injuries that put her out of commission for several months. Throughout the 1970s, Ann-Margret balanced her live musical performances with a string of critically acclaimed dramatic film roles that played against her glamorous image. These included Tommy in 1975, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. In addition, she has been nominated for ten Golden Globe Awards and has won five times, including her Best Actress for Tommy. She also did a string of successful TV specials, starting with The Ann-Margret Show for NBC in 1968. Now in her mid-60s, she continues to act in films.
In 1994, she published an autobiography titled Ann Margret: My Story (ISBN 0-399-13891-9). She has been married to actor Roger Smith since 1967. Smith suffers from myasthenia gravis, and his wife has devoted much of her life to caring for him. In 2001 Ann-Margret made her first appearance in a stage musical, playing the character of Mona Stangley in a new touring production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. In 1995, she was chosen by Empire Magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history; she ranked 10th.
She has also filmed the movie "Mem-o-re," in which she stars with Billy Zane and Dennis Hopper.
Ann-Margret has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6501 Hollywood Blvd. Rose McGowan portrayed Ann-Margret in the 2005 television miniseries, Elvis.

Trivia:
In 1989 a photo of Oprah Winfrey graced the cover of TV Guide and although the head was Oprah's the body came from a 1979 publicity shot of Ann-Margret. The photo was created without the permission of either Winfrey or Ann-Margret. The photo was later mentioned in the television sitcom Mama's Family episode 127 entitled 'Pinup Mama'.
Ann-Margret is not a natural redhead: her real hair colour is 'natural blonde'. The hair colour was the idea of Sydney Guilaroff, the legendary hairdresser who changed the hair colour of other famous actresses such as Lucille Ball.
