SUSAN HAYWARD (JUNE 30, 1917–MAR. 14, 1975)


After working as a fashion model in New York, Susan Hayward travelled to
Hollywood in 1937 when open auditions were held for the leading role in
Gone With the Wind (1939). Although she was not selected, she secured
a film contract, and played several small supporting roles over the next few
years. By the late 1940s the quality of her film roles had improved, and she
achieved recognition for her dramatic abilities with the first of five Academy
Award nominations for Best Actress for her performance as an alcoholic in
Smash-Up, the Story of a Woman (1947). Her career continued successfully
through the 1950s and she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her
portrayal of death row inmate Barbara Graham in I Want to Live (1958).
