Teresa Wright was born in 1918. This super likeable classy actress was not only nominated for both Best Actress AND Best Supporting Actress in a single year (she won the supporting Oscar for Mrs. Miniver) but she also completed the remarkable "hat trick" of being nominated for Oscars for her very first three film roles, something that is highly unlikely to ever be repeated! Her fourth role was the lead in Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt, and she also had memorable roles in The Best Years of Our Lives and The Men (opposite Marlon Brando, in his first movie). But it seems her heart was never in the movies, and she turned to TV in the 1950s, and did much work on the stage. Personally, I will always remember her best for her role as Eleanor Gehrig, wife of Lou Gehrig in The Pride Of The Yankees (nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for this film)! She is also well-remembered for her role in The Little Foxes (nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for this film). She passed away in 2005 at the age of 86.
