Leora Dana

Highest Rated: 96% 3:10 to Yuma (1957)
Birthday: Apr 1, 1923
Birthplace: Not Available
American actress Leora Dana entered films and TV after extensive stage work. Her prim, prematurely matronly features precluded leading-lady work for Leora, except for occasional appearances on such TV anthologies as The Alfred Hitchcock Show. Her film work consisted of sizeable supporting roles in films like 3:10 to Yuma (1957), Kings Go Forth (1958), and Pollyanna (1960), playing preacher Karl Malden's wife in the latter film. Additional film credits include The Group (1966), The Boston Strangler (1968), Change of Habit (1969) and Shoot the Moon (1981). Leora was also seen in a continuing role on the never-ending daytime drama Another World, and in 1976 she played the older Abigail Adams in the 13-part PBS series The Adams Chronicles (Kathryn Walker was the younger Abigail). At one time, Leora Dana was married to stage and film actor Kurt Kasznar.
