Stage Name

Birth Name

Bambi Linn Bambi Linnemeier  
Rod Alexander n/a
         Bambi Lynn studied with Agnes De Mille and began her career in Ballet Theater in 1941 and in 1947 danced with the American Repertory Theater. She appeared in the original Stage production of 'Carousel' as Billy Bigelow's daughter. Bambi and Rod Alexander teamed up and appeared on the Television show called 'Your Show of Shows' on 9/6/1950 and continued on, replacing Nelle Fisher and Jerry Ross, dancing in a total of eighty-six shows until April 25, 1952.

    Bambi and Rod were a graceful couple to watch and the Television audience liked them very much. They were said to have had a air of flirtiness which made the dances they performed look fun. Rod also did some choreography for Stage and screen such as 'Best Things in Life Are Free' (1956) and Carousel (1956.)
