40 Glamorous Photos of Ann Blyth in the 1940s and ’50s

Born 1928 in Mount Kisco, New York, American actress Ann Blyth performed on children’s radio shows in New York for six years, making her first appearance when she was five. When she was nine, she joined the New York Children’s Opera Company.

Blyth had her first acting role on Broadway in Lillian Hellman’s Watch on the Rhine (from 1941 until 1942). The play ran for 378 performances, and won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. She began her acting career initially as “Anne Blyth”, but changed the spelling of her first name back to “Ann” at the beginning of her film career. She made her film debut in 1944 in the teen-age musical Chip Off the Old Block (1944).

For her performance as Veda in the 1945 Michael Curtiz film Mildred Pierce, Blyth was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She is one of the last surviving stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
