Personal Quote:

I was nervous from the very beginning and it got worse as the years went on. I was conscientious and wanted to do more, always, than I was able. I don't think, when I was playing, that I was ever happy - beginning at 4 o'clock any afternoon. See more »

Trivia:

Won Broadway's 1948 Tony Award as Best Actress (Dramatic) for a revival of Shakespeare's "Antony and Cleopatra" - an award shared with Judith Anderson for "Medea" and Jessica Tandy for "A Streetcar Named Desire". See more »
