Anne Jackson

Actress

Born - 3 September 1925, Millvale, Pennsylvania, USA
Died - 12 April 2016

Gawky, auburn-haired, toothy American actress with an easy talent for wisecracks, often seen as ordinary working women. Born 10 years too late: a decade earlier, she would been in demand for lovable loyal secretaries and witty best friends. She became a titan of the theatre, but an attempt to make her a star of sixties' cinema was successful only with the critics. Born Anna Jackson, she was on the stage and TV from the late 1940s. Film appearances include So Young, So Bad (1950), The Journey (1958), Tall Story (1960), The Tiger Makes Out (1967), The Secret Life of an American Wife (1968), False Witness/Zigzag (1969), Lovers and Other Strangers (1970), Dirty Dingus Magee (1970), Nasty Habits (1976), The Shining (1979), Sam's Son (1984), Funny About Love (1990), Folks! (1991), Something Sweet (2000) and Lucky Days (2008), her last. She was married for 66 years to fellow-actor Eli Wallach until his death in 2014.
