    (August 3, 1923-August 29, 1977)
    Acted in 'Adam's Rib (1949),' 'Ambush (1949),' 'Side Street (1950),' 'Asphalt Jungle (1950),' 'Singin' in the Rain (1952),' 'Shadow in the Sky (1952),' 'Arena (1953),' 'Latin Lovers (1953),' 'Half a Hero (1953),' 'The Big Knife (1955),' 'Spring Reunion (1957),' 'The Shaggy Dog (1959),' 'Sunrise at Campebello (1960),' 'Panic at Year Zero!

    Acted on the TV series 'Make Room For Daddy (1953)'
    Best Known for the role of Lina Lamont in 'Singin' in the Rain (1952)'
    Birth name is Jean Shirley Verhagen
    She was divorced.
    She was nominated for an Emmy twice and never won.
    When she chose to leave 'Make Room for Daddy,' Danny Thomas wrote her out of the show by explaining that she had 'died,' rather than replace her with another actress.
    After 'Make Room For Daddy,' her career nose dived.
    She was typecast as a housewife and mother.
    Gloria Graham beat her out to the 1953 Oscar.
    She was a graduate of Northwestern University.
    Although typecast as a housewife, her acting ability ranged from a 1950's housewife to a Gangster's moll.
    She hilariously immortalized the role of silent film star Lina Lamont in 'Singin' in the Rain (1952).'
    She was nominated for an Oscar in 1953 for 'Best Supporting Actress' for her role in 'Singin' in the Rain (1952).'
    Her Oscar loss is considered 'One of the Great Hollywood Injustices.'
    She did her own singing in 'Singin' in the Rain (1952),' despite the fact that her character was supposed to be getting dubbed over in the film.
    Her acting was so versatile that she became hard to cast.
    She died of throat cancer.
