Birthday greetings to ANN BLYTH who is 91 today.

Ann was active in Hollywood films in the 1940s and 50s, but after THE HELEN MORGAN STORY in 1957, she worked exclusively on stage and television till her retirement in 1985.

Her lovely singing voice was heard in KISMET, ROSE MARIE, THE STUDENT PRINCE, though not in The Helen Morgan Story (in which she was dubbed by Gogi  Grant.)

At the age of 16 Ann was Oscar nominated for her fine performance as the venomous Veda In MILDRED PIERCE.

With Gregory Peck in THE WORLD IN HIS ARMS.


With Robert Taylor  and Stewart Granger in ALL THE BROTHERS WERE VALIANT.


With Joan Crawford in MILDRED PIERCE.

  1. Nice footage of Ann on YT at San Francisco’s Castro Theatre. She was interviewed by comedian Bruce Vilanch following a screening of Mildred in front of an enthusiastic gay audience.
