Jean Aubuchon Cinader, star of the 1940s Broadway comedy Dream Girl, has died. She was 96.
Cinader died on Feb. 5 in Los Angeles of natural causes, a representative for the family told The Hollywood Reporter on Friday.
She was also married, for 31 years, to Robert A. Cinader, the producer of the popular Adam-12, Emergency! and Quincy TV series, until his death in 1982.
Born on Aug. 9, 1922, in St. Louis, Missouri to Cliff and Lucille Aubuchon, Cinader trained as an actress in New York City. Besides appearing in over 100 TV commercials, Cinader co-starred, beginning in Dec. 1945, in the original Broadway production of the Elmer Rice comedy Dream Girl, not to be confused with the popular musical Dreamgirls.
The Coronet Theatre production ran for 348 performances on Broadway, or around one year, before a touring production followed.
Cinader was a longtime resident of Los Angeles as well as a supporter of animal welfare and environmental protection causes.
