Dina Merrill


American actress, model, heiress, socialite, businesswoman, and philanthropist, the daughter of millionaire Edward F. Hutton and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post. Her films included The Sundowners (1959), The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963) and The Pleasure Seekers (1964).

Merrill married for the third time in November 1989. Her first husband was a Marine, Stanley Rumbough, then actor Cliff Robertson, and she had a total of four kids. She first met actor Ted Hartley more than 30 years before they began to date in 1986 and fell in love.

Together with a group of investors, Merrill and Hartley bought the struggling RKO Pictures the year of their marriage. They reaped more than $50 million with their production, Mighty Joe Young, released in December 1998.

Merrill died on 22 May 2017 at her home in East Hampton, New York at age 93. She had been suffering from dementia with Lewy bodies.

Sy Scholfield quotes from New York Birth Index: "Nedenia M Hutton, Birth Date: 29 Dec 1923, Birth Place: Manhattan" (New York City Department of Health, Certificate Number: 1171).

"The recent arrival of a daughter" to "Mr. and Mrs. Edward F. Hutton" is announced in "Hutton Heir Born," The Brooklyn Daily Eagle (Brooklyn, New York), 7 February 1924, page 1.

Tucker's Research Quarterly, January 1961, incorrectly reported date of birth as 9 December 1925 and time 7:18 AM. The source of the birth time is unknown, it could have been calculated for a 'sunrise chart.'

Hillwood Museum correctly reports the birth of Nedenia Marjorie Hutton on 29 December 1923. Another source incorrectly reports 29 December 1925.
