Birthplace: Newark, New Jersey, USA

Though her film appearances were sporadic at best - less than 20 movies between 1955 and 2006 - Academy Award winner Eva Marie Saint enjoyed revered status among her peers due to her emotionally complex performances in several iconic films. She was perhaps best known as the delicate object of affection for dock worker Marlon Brando in "On the Waterfront" (1951), which earned her an Oscar. She would play variations on the role in several subsequent features, including "A Hatful of Rain" (1957), though Alfred Hitchcock would tap her inner sexiness as a double agent opposite Cary Grant in "North by Northwest" (1959). Sadly, the majority of Saint's films never rose to her skill level, so she found more substantive work on television, where she contributed greatly to such projects as "Fatal Vision" (1984) and "People Like Us" (1990). Her return to the big screen in "Superman Returns" (2006) reminded moviegoers not only of her timeless, ethereal beauty, but her acting chops, which - though rarely given their proper showcase - had been substantial enough to hold her own against the Brando's and Grant's of the world.
