Martha Vickers

Thursday, 28th May 1925 - Tuesday, 2nd November 1971
Ann Arbor MI
USA


Beautiful actress of the 1940s whose breakout role in The Big Sleep was sadly cut down to allow the spotlight to shine on Lauren Bacall instead. One wonders where she would have gone if her performance had remained, as it deserved to be.
