More information

Merrill was born Nedenia Marjorie Hutton in New York City, New York, the only child of Post Cereals heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and her second husband, Wall Street stockbroker Edward Francis Hutton. She was educated at Miss Porter's School and George Washington University.



When Merrill informed her father that she wanted to become an actress on the New York stage, he was outraged. He did not want the "good name" of Hutton paraded on the Great White Way. She asked her father whom he disliked more than anyone else in the world, and he replied Charlie Merrill, founder of Wall Street competitor Merrill Lynch. Out of spite, Nedenia Hutton became Dina Merrill.

...  


Merrill has thus far acted in twenty-two motion pictures, including 1957's Desk Set, 1959's Operation Petticoat (with Cary Grant, who was married to her cousin, Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton), 1960's The Sundowners and Butterfield 8, 1961's The Young Savages, 1963's The Courtship of Eddie's Father, 1977's A Wedding, 1991's True Colors, and 1992's The Player.



Merrill appeared regularly as a guest star on numerous television series in the 1960s, notably as villainess Calamity Jan in a 1966 episode of Batman alongside her then-husband, Cliff Robertson.
