Martha Stewart


Born - 7 October 1922, Bardwell, Kentucky, USA
Died - 17 February 2021

Minxish brunette actress in 1940s' Hollywood, not to be confused with the TV personality of the same name. A cross between Jan Sterling and Bette Davis in looks, this Martha (born Martha Stewart Haworth) began as a singer and most of her initial film appearances came in musicals. Later she proved herself a competent dramatic actress opposite such stars as Glenn Ford and Humphrey Bogart, before dropping out of acting to raise a family with her third husband. Films include Come Back to Me/Doll Face (1945), Johnny Comes Flying Home (1946), I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now (1947), Daisy Kenyon (1947), Are You With It? (1948), Convicted (1950), In a Lonely Place (1950) and Marshmallow Moon/Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick (1951). She returned to acting for a few years in the 1960s, during which time she made an appearance in the teen musical Surf Party (1963). It was her last. Her first husband was nightclub comedian Joe E Lewis, and her second character actor George O'Hanlon. She died from coronavirus complications.
