  • American actress Marsha Hunt, born Marcia Hunt, attended the Theodore Irving School of Dramatics while still a teenager. Simultaneously, she worked as a Powers model until she debuted onscreen in The Virginia Judge (1935) at age 18. Hunt went on to become a very busy screen actress through the early '50s. In the '30s she appeared in supporting roles such as bridesmaids and coeds, while in the '40s she played leads in second features and second leads and supporting roles in major productions. In the early '50s, during the heyday of the McCarthy Era "witch hunts," she was blacklisted by the studios for her liberal political beliefs, and after 1952 she appeared in only a handful of films, as well as the TV series Peck's Bad Girl. Through the '80s, however, she still turned up occasionally in character roles on TV. From 1938-43 she was married to editor (now director) Jerry Hopper. After 1946 she was married to movie/TV scriptwriter Robert Presnell Jr., who died in 1986. She remains active in social issues, lending her help to organizations involved with such issues as peace, poverty, population, and pollution; she is a frequent speaker on the issues that concern her, and she serves on nearly a dozen Boards of Directors. She was last onscreen in Johnny Got His Gun (1971).

QUOTES FROM Marsha Hunt CHARACTERS

Susan Bonnard
Bibi, what have you got on your sleeves?
Bibi
They're too long. Before he left town, Uncle Desmond gave me some garters to hold them up.
Susan Bonnard
Women's garters! Take them off! Look at them! Off some... stranger's legs!
Grandpere Bonnard
To Desmond she was not a stranger.
Susan Bonnard
Jacques!
Jacques Bonnard
Calm yourself, my love. My brother is young.
Susan Bonnard
Your son is younger.
Jacques Bonnard
And after all, there is no great harm in catching garters that are thrown from the stage of the Casino Burlesque. It's done by some of our most distinguished citizens. It's a form of sport.
Susan Bonnard
I don't want garters from the burlesque on my son's arms.
Bibi
Only one is from the burlesque! The other was obtained privately!
