In her early years she was a Glamour Queen. Her first film appearance was waaaay back in 1925 (!),and she won an Oscar for MILDRED PIERCE (1945).
will always remember her for her weird,off beat roles in the 60's and early 70's.
I know she was great in WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE and HUSH HUSH SWEET CHARLOTTE...but my
personal favorite is STRAIGHT JACKET.
Any favorites from the Queen of Mean?
