Jo Morrow (born November 1, 1939 in Cuero, Texas as Beverly Jo Morrow[1]), is an American film actress. Through a "Be a Star" contest she won a film contract with 20th Century Fox (with Gary Cooper in Ten North Frederick) in 1958.[2]. After only one film with 20th Century-Fox she moved to Columbia Pictures, allegedly because a producer at 20th Century Fox tried to make a pass at her.[1]

At Columbia she made some ten films and a dozen TV series episodes between 1958 and 1963, the most notable being Our Man in Havana, in which she played Alec Guinness' daughter Milly.[3]

In 1963 she married Jack Barnett, songwriter for Jimmy Durante.[1] The 1964 birth of a deaf daughter[1] forced her to choose between movies and motherhood; she chose motherhood. She had a brief comeback in a few exploitation films and TV series episodes in the 1970s.[2][3]
