Suzanne Carnahan was billed under her own name when she made her entree into films in 1940. As Susan Peters, she was signed as an MGM contract player in 1942, earning an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Kitty in MGM's Random Harvest. In 1944, she was paralyzed from the waist down in a hunting accident, and was thereafter confined to a wheelchair. Peters made a courageous film comeback in 1948, playing a vicious, conniving invalid in Sign of the Ram. In 1951, she starred as a female lawyer in the Philadelphia-based daily TV serial Miss Susan. The pressures of live television exacerbated Peters' already precarious physical condition, forcing her to retire from the series; not long afterward, she died of a variety of medical complications at the age of 31. From 1943 to 1948, Susan Peters was married to writer/director Richard Quine.
