Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Barbara Bebe Lyon (September 9, 1931 - July 10, 1995) was a singer of popular songs and actress, born in the United States but primarily active in the United Kingdom. She was born in Hollywood, California. Her parents, Ben Lyon and Bebe Daniels, were both Hollywood actors, beginning in silent films with careers extending into the 1930s. In the early part of World War II, Ben Lyon joined the Royal Air Force, and though the family returned later to the United States, they made Britain their adopted home. From 1950 to 1961 they had a radio programme on the BBC, Life With The Lyons. Ben, Bebe, Barbara, and Barbara's brother Richard all played themselves on this show (perhaps inspired by the success in the U.S. of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, also featuring a real-life family), bringing the family before the UK public.show more
