Lizabeth Scott - Rotten Tomatoes

Lizabeth Scott

Lowest Rated:   33% The Racket (1951)
Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA
Born into the Czech ghetto in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Lizabeth Scott attended the Alvienne School of Drama in New York and began her career in stock. Scott's first break came when she was cast as Tallulah Bankhead's understudy in Broadway's The Skin of Our Teeth (1942); meanwhile, she also worked as a fashion model. Starmaker Hal Wallis spotted her, and she did well in a screen test, leading to her film debut in 1945. She went on to play alluring leads in a number of films throughout the next decade, hyped by her studio as another Lauren Bacall or Veronica Lake. There was speculation that Scott would marry Wallis, but this never occurred, and he dropped her option in 1957, effectively ending her movie career. In 1955 she sued Confidential magazine over its allegations concerning her sexual preferences. She appeared in her last film, Pulp (1972), with Michael Caine. Scott died in 2015, at age 92.
