Mary Grace Canfield

Actress

Born - 4 September 1924, Rochester, New York, USA
Died - 15 February 2014

Big-lipped, fair-haired, rather sour-looking American actress, much in demand for brisk, distinctive cameos, although in fewer films than one remembers. On stage from the late 1940s and TV from the early 1950s, her film debut came as late as 1960 in the Disney version of Pollyanna. Later movies included The Interns (1962), Come Blow Your Horn (1963), Archie (1964), The St Valentine's Day Massacre (1967), Half a House (1975), Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983), South of Reno (1988) and Young Goodman Brown (1993), her last. Her first marriage ended in 1955 and she did not marry again until she was 64. The actress died from lung cancer.
