Highest Rated: 100% Gentleman Jim (1942)

Lowest Rated: 14% Any Number Can Play (1949)

Birthday: Jun 8, 1921

Birthplace: Penticton, British Columbia, Canada

In her teens she acted in summer stock, then starred in a play at Los Angeles City College; there she was spotted by a talent scout and, following a screen test, signed to a long-term film contract. For the next decade-plus she played leads in numerous films, usually cast as charming, industrious, shrewd, standoffish women; she was especially effective as "the other woman." She retired from the screen at the end of the '50s. In the early '70s she returned to star in the Broadway musical Follies; newly popular, she began making films again in 1975. She was married to actor Craig Stevens.
