Anne Jackson - Rotten Tomatoes

Anne Jackson



Trained at New York's Neighborhood Playhouse and the Actor's Studio, Anne Jackson was a stage actress since 1944 and a film performer since 1950. On stage, Jackson has frequently co-starred with her husband, Eli Wallach. The couple's near-telepathic rapport with one another has inspired playwrights like Murray Schisgal and Terence McNally to fashion plays specifically designed for the Wallachs' talents; their biggest Broadway hit was Schisgal's Luv, in which Jackson and Wallach appeared with Alan Arkin. Anne Jackson's film credits include Tall Story (1960), The Tiger Makes Out (1967; based on Schisgal's one-act play The Tiger), The Secret Life of an American Wife (1968), Nasty Habits (1976) and Funny About Love (1989); the film she is best remembered for is Lovers and Other Strangers (1968), in which Jackson's mother-of-the-bride character spent half her time sobbing hysterically in the bathroom. Jackson and Wallach remained married until Wallach's death in 2014; Jackson herself passed away in 2016, at age 90.
