      Billie Burke

      Highest Rated: 100% Craig's Wife (1936)

      Lowest Rated: 55% The Barkleys of Broadway (1949)

      Birthday: Aug 7, 1884

      Birthplace: Washington, D.C., USA

      Glamorous light comedienne who, in the midst of a successful Broadway career, entered films at the behest of Thomas Ince in 1916. After a period away from films, Burke returned to features in the early 1930s in character roles. She is perhaps best known as Glinda, the Good Witch of the East, in the timeless "The Wizard of Oz" (1939). Burke enjoyed great popularity as a featured player over the next two decades, often playing dithery, aristocratic types. Married to impresario Florenz Ziegfeld from 1914 until his death in 1932.
