  • Anglo-Russian actress Joan Lorring settled in the U.S. in 1939 and became a busy LA-based radio actress, roller-skating from one job to another because she wasn't yet old enough to drive. Though she made her first film in 1943, her big break didn't occur until she was cast opposite Bette Davis as the sluttish Bessie Watty in The Corn is Green, for which she won an Academy Award nomination. Signed to a Warner Bros. contract, Lorring went on to appear opposite Sidney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre in a brace of noirish dramas, Three Strangers (1946) and The Verdict (1946). When her film career went into decline, Joan Lorring returned to radio and the stage; she also co-starred in the 1955 TV sitcom Norby. Her last on-screen role was in a 1980 episode of The Love Boat. Lorring died in 2014, at age 88.
