It's Time for Killer!!!

Bob's August Birthday Ladies, No. 7

Ann Blyth was born August 16, 1928 in Cisco, New York.  Her first critical success as an actress was at the age of 17, as the "malicious, spiteful" daughter Veda to Joan Crawford's long-suffering Mildred Pierce in 1945, for which she earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actress.  Making mostly musicals in the 1950s, she ended her movie career earning critical acclaim in The Helen Morgan Story (1957), in which she played the title role of the liquor-swilling torch singer.  After movies, she devoted her time to the musical stage and her family.  Ann was married to Dr. James McNulty from 1953 until his death in 2007, and somehow managed to give birth to and raise five children during her busy career.  Rather impressive all in all, Ms. Blyth.  Hoping your 86th!! Birthday finds you in good health and surrounded by your family and loved ones.  And thank you for one of my favorite movie roles ... Killer!!
