Ann Blyth turns 83 today!!! Ann was born in Mount Kisco, New York in 1928. One of her most famous roles was playing the bitchy, stuck up daughter Veda in Mildred Pierce (1945) for which she was nominated for an Academy Award. Some of her other films include Brute Force (1947), Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid (1948), Our Very Own (1950), Kismet (1955), and many more. She has been married to Dr. James McNulty since 1953 and has had five children. I love seeing famous people have successful marriages! She may not have maintained the stardom she had when she appeared in Mildred Pierce but she consistently made movies up into the late 1950's and did a good amount of television work. In 1960 she starred in a tv movie version of A.J. Cronin's novel The Citadel. I love that book and I wish there was a way to see the tv version she acted in.
Anyway, she gave off this proper, homebody, perfect housewife vibe and it actually didn't bother me. So, happy birthday Ann and I hope you have many more to come!
