40 Fabulous Photos of Susan Strasberg in the 1950s and ’60s

Born 1938 in New York City, American actress Susan Strasberg Strasberg appeared off-Broadway in Maya in 1953 at age 14, which ran seven performances. Her TV debut was in “Catch a Falling Star”, an episode of Goodyear Playhouse directed by Delbert Mann the same year.

Imagined to be the next Hepburn-type ingenue, Strasberg was nominated for a Tony Award at age 18, playing the title role in The Diary of Anne Frank. She appeared on the covers of Life and Newsweek in 1955.

A close friend of Marilyn Monroe and Richard Burton, Strasberg wrote two best-selling tell-all books. Her later career primarily consisted of slasher and horror films, followed by TV roles, by the 1980s. Her last performances included the biopic Schweitzer (1990), the action movie Prime Suspect (1990), and Il giardino dei ciliegi (1992).

Strasberg died of breast cancer at her home in New York City in 1999, at the age of 60. Take a look at these fabulous photos to see the beauty of young Susan Strasberg in the 1950s and 1960s.
