a lovely actress
actress cathy o'donnell had the most tender screen presence. actor farley granger had lovely things to say about his two time co-star in his wonderful autobiography. the personal facts of cathy's life are sad. at the age of 24 she married the brother of a director who decided to quit working for the studio where cathy had a contract. feeling that she was being disloyal, the studio pretty much ended her film career. she went on to work in t.v. but died at 46. what she has left behind are deeply felt performances for us to cherish.
