Janet Margolin - Rotten Tomatoes

Janet Margolin



Fresh out of New York's High School of Performing Arts, doe-eyed actress Janet Margolin was cast as an emotionally disturbed teenager in the Broadway production Daughter of Silence. Though the play didn't last long, Margolin's performance won her the similar role of a schizophrenic girl who speaks only in backward rhymes in the 1962 film David and Lisa. This award-winning assignment proved to be the high point of Margolin's career; most of her later roles (Mary of Bethany in 1965's The Greatest Story Ever Told, Gina Lollobrigida's daughter in 1968's Buona Sera Mrs. Campbell etc.) made but minimal demands on her acting skills. Better opportunities came her way in a brace of Woody Allen films, Take the Money and Run (1969) and Annie Hall (1977). On TV, Janet Margolin co-starred in the 1975 detective series Lanigan's Rabbi. Janet Margolin died of ovarian cancer at the age of 50; she was survived by her husband, actor Ted Wass.
