A veteran character actress, Jeanette Nolan capped her long career with a cameo appearance as the elderly mother of Tom Booker (played by Robert Redford) in "The Horse Whisperer" (1998), filmed in her adopted home state of Montana. The petite native of Los Angeles began her career as a teenager at the Pasadena Playhouse and by the time she was in college had begun appearing in radio dramas. Her debut was in one of the first transcontinental broadcasts, "Omar Khayyam" in 1932. Nolan went on to amass credits in such shows as "One Man's Family" and "Suspense." In the early 1930s she met and married fellow actor John McIntire; they moved to NYC in 1935 where each landed work on radio's "The March of Time." She and her husband purchased a ranch in Montana in 1937 where they spent much of their free time.
