Suggested still for NOOMI RAPACE (Prometheus, The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo, Sherlock Holmes: A game of shadows)
“I wanted to do my [own] stunt scenes. And I wanted also to wake up some kind of aggressive side in me. I think that everybody has some kind of animal inside, and sometimes it’s good to let it out.”
Noomi Rapace (28 December 1979) is a Swedish actress. She is best known for her portrayal of Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish/Danish film adaptations of the “Millennium series”: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest. She more recently played Sim in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and will star as Shaw in the upcoming Ridley Scott science fiction film Prometheus.
Rapace was born in Hudiksvall. Her mother, Nina Norén, is a Swedish actress, and her father, Rogelio Durán (1953–2006), was a Spanish cantaor (Flamenco singer) from Badajoz. She has said that her father may have been of part Roma descent, and though she is “not sure if it is true”, she has “always been interested in the culture”. Rapace’s sister, Særún Norén, is a photographer. Rapace has said that she saw her father only occasionally before his death. At the age of five, she moved from Sweden to Flúðir, Iceland, with her mother and stepfather. At the age of seven she made her film debut in the Icelandic film In the Shadow of the Raven playing a minor role.
At the age of seven, Rapace was given a non-speaking part in the film Í skugga hrafnsins by Hrafn Gunnlaugsson. This experience made her decide to be an actress. She left home at age 15 and enrolled in a Stockholm theatre school. In 1996, she made her TV début playing the part of Lucinda Gonzales in the TV series Tre kronor. From 1998 to 1999, Rapace studied at Skara Skolscen. She has been engaged at Theater Plaza 2000–2001, Orionteatern 2001, Teater Galeasen 2002, Stockholms stadsteater in 2003 as well as at the Royal Dramatic Theatre.
She drew acclaim for her award-winning portrayal of a troubled teen mother in the 2007 Danish film Daisy Diamond. In 2009 she played the role of Lisbeth Salander in the film adaptation of the best-selling novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She reprised her role in the sequels The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest. Since her breakthrough role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Rapace has been in high demand in Hollywood, and she was rumored to have read for or tested for roles in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, This Means War and The Raven. On 11 September 2010, Entertainment Weekly reported that Rapace had been cast in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, her first English-speaking role, as a French Gypsy; the film was released in 2011. She is also to be in the next Ridley Scott movie, Prometheus.- Wikipedia
Suggested still for EVANGELINE LILLY (The Hobbit: An unexpected journey, Real Steel, Afterwards, The Hurt Locker)
Evangeline Lilly (August 3, 1979) was born in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada, to a devout Protestant family. Her father was an economics teacher, and her mother is a secretary at Sandy Hill Elementary. Lilly also has two sisters. Her youngest sister, Andrea, has been described by Evangeline as “the actor in the family.”
Before leaving the town of Fort Saskatchewan for Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, Evangeline briefly attended three elementary schools, Fort Elementary, Rudolph Hennig and James Mowat Elementary. Lilly recalled, “When I was a kid, the Fort was tiny. I could ride my bike at five years old from one end of town to the other…. To me Fort Saskatchewan holds a lot of really great memories. I just consider it a little happy hideaway.” In Abbotsford, Lilly completed her high school years at W. J. Mouat Secondary School, and went on to study international relations at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.
Lilly also served briefly as a foreign missionary and lived in a grass hut in the Philippines. She was offered permanent missionary work there for two years, an offer she nearly accepted but eventually declined because of her parents’ wishes. Lilly was a flight attendant with Royal Airlines and also did some modelling for phone chat line Livelinks. She speaks French very well. She also worked at Green Bay Bible Camp near Kelowna and at the Earls Restaurant in Abbotsford.
She studied acting at The Yaletown Actors Lab with writer, director David Palffy and was first discovered by agent Jeff Palffy, formerly of Ford Models, now with PMG Management in Vancouver.
Lilly appeared on G4’s Judgment Day and in an uncredited role in the 2003 film Freddy vs. Jason as a high-school girl leaning against a locker, and some appearances in a few episodes of Smallville as an extra. She had a guest appearance on the ABC supernatural horror series Kingdom Hospital (2004). She also appeared on a Live Links chat line commercial. Lilly’s first speaking role was on Lost, a role in which Palffy was instrumental in helping her to obtain.
When Lilly was cast as Kate Austen in Lost, her main concern was acquiring a work visa to enter the United States. With production literally days away and no news about the visa, casting directors were forced to grudgingly begin re-casting the role of Kate. After nearly 20 auditions, Lilly’s work visa was approved/cleared but she arrived on set a day late.
Her salary in 2004 for Lost was $80,000 per episode. On the heels of her role in Lost, she was voted one of the Breakout Stars of 2004 by Entertainment Weekly and on December 14, 2006, was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Lead Actress-Drama. Action figures of Lilly’s Lost character were released during the holiday season of 2006. On May 11, 2010, Lilly announced on The View that she places writing and being a mother as top priorities, but she likes acting as a day job and she will continue acting when possible.
Lilly is planning to write children’s books called The Squickerwonkers.
On June 19, 2011, it was announced that Lilly would play the role of the Elf Tauriel in Peter Jackson’s upcoming two-part adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, due for release in December 2012 and 2013 and currently in production in New Zealand.
On Oct 17, 2011, Lilly stated on Jimmy Kimmel Live that she is trying to distance herself from her character in the TV show “Lost” and is now focusing on her future film projects.
Lilly has stated that she “live[s] in a bubble”, specifying that she is not familiar with popular culture and does not watch television or own a TV set. She has also said that she would not appear in a nude scene or perform in sexual scenes that she would consider “gratuitous”.
In the May 9, 2007 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Lilly described her deep need to leave her home town after her high-school graduation. She did much travelling at this point in her life, moving from town to town approximately every six months. She stated that in each town she took on a persona; for example, she would decide in one town to take on the role of a “nerdy bookworm” and in another, a ditzy “cheerleader” type. She has jokingly stated that, as such, she would frequently date different men.
Lilly has also used her celebrity status to help promote Just Yell Fire, a 2006 video aimed at teaching teenage girls how to defend themselves against rapists.
Her fellow Lost actor Josh Holloway also calls her “Freckles”, sharing the nickname his on-screen character Sawyer gave her. She was also known on set for being a tomboy, and “potty mouth”.
On December 20, 2006, Lilly’s house in Kailua, Hawaii, was completely destroyed by fire while she was on the Lost set with one of her two roommates, both of whom work as her stand-ins on the show. The second roommate was off-island at the time of the blaze, which occurred on the final day of shooting before the show’s holiday break. The cause of the fire was an electrical problem.
Lilly was once married to Canadian hockey player Murray Hone. From 2004 to 2009, Lilly dated Lost co-star Dominic Monaghan. She had her first child, a son named Kahekili (a Hawaiian name meaning “The Thunder”), with boyfriend Norman Kali in May 2011.-Wikipedia

Why have the pages for “Temporária” and “A Couple Of Spiders” been only partially created and unavailable since september?
Suggested still for “A Couple Of Spiders”:
Ben Carruthers was known primarily as an actor, particularly for his role as the moody brother in John Cassavettes’ groundbreaking late-‘50s independent film Shadows. He appeared in several other movies in the 1960s, including Jonas Mekas’ Guns of the Trees and The Dirty Dozen. As a singer, he also made one intriguing single in 1965, credited to Ben Carruthers and the Deep.
Carruthers, an American, was at the time living in London. His single, “Jack o’ Diamonds”/“Right Behind You,” was produced by the renowned Shel Talmy (at that time also producing the Who and the Kinks) and issued on Parlophone in June 1965. The words from “Jack o’ Diamonds” were taken from a Bob Dylan poem on the back of Dylan’s fourth album, Another Side of Bob Dylan, and put to music by Carruthers. Although Carruthers had an unremarkable voice, it was a good single, not so much folk-rock as good second-tier British Invasion in arrangement. The flip side, “Right Behind You,” was written by Carruthers alone and was in an entirely different vein. Close to straight jazz, it was reminiscent of the jazz–blues-rock crossover of other London acts of the time, such as Georgie Fame.
“Jack o’ Diamonds” was not a hit, and in fact, if listeners know it at all, it’s probably through the good version that Fairport Convention included on their first album. (In passing, it also serves as evidence of just how fanatical Fairport Convention members must have been as record collectors to even be aware of the original version in the first place.) Both sides of the single were reissued on the British Invasion rarities anthology The R&B Scene (although the Carruthers single wasn’t too R&B-influenced). Carruthers, who didn’t do other singles, died in 1993.—allmusic.com

Leatrice Joy (November 7, 1893 – May 13, 1985) was an American actress most prolific during the early silent film era.
Born as Leatrice Joy Zeidler in New Orleans, Louisiana, she began her acting career in stock theater companies and made her film debut for the little-known small New Orleans based Nola Film Company in 1915. By 1917 she relocated to the relatively young film colony in Hollywood, California and began appearing in comedy shorts opposite Billy West and Oliver Hardy. Signed under contract with Samuel Goldwyn Studios, her first role for the studio was in 1917s The Pride of the Clan opposite Mary Pickford. By 1920, Joy’s career quickly gained momentum and she became a highly popular actress with the film-going public and was given leading lady status opposite such performers as Wallace Beery, Conrad Nagel, Nita Naldi and Irene Rich.
Joy was often cast by directors in the role of the strong-willed and independent woman, and in the liberated atmosphere of the Jazz Age Roaring Twenties solidified her public popularity, especially with women film-goers. Her close-cropped hair and somewhat boyish persona (she was several times cast as a woman mistaken for a young man) became fashionable during the era. With her increasing popularity, Joy was sought out by Cecil B. DeMille and signed to contract to Paramount Pictures in 1922 and that same year was cast in the successful high-society drama Saturday Night opposite Conrad Nagel. Joy starred in a number of successful releases for Paramount and was heavily promoted as one of DeMille’s most prominent protégés.
In 1925, against the advice of studio executives, Joy parted ways with Paramount and followed DeMille to his new film company Producers Distributing Corporation and she made a few modestly successful films for the company, including Lois Weber’s last silent film The Angel of Broadway in 1927. A professional dispute ended the partnership with DeMille and Joy in 1928 and Joy was signed with MGM. Joy headlined MGM’s second part-talkie effort, The Bellamy Trial in 1928, opposite Betty Bronson and Margaret Livingston.
Joy’s career began to falter with the advent of talkies. It has been alleged that her career decline rested in part with her heavy southern accent that was considered unfashionable in comparison with the refined east coast diction of the newer actresses. In 1929 Joy became a freelance actress without a contract. By the early 1930s, Joy was in semi-retirement from the motion picture industry, but she later made several guest appearances in a few modestly successful films. One such appearance was in the 1951 release Love Nest, which featured a young Marilyn Monroe.
In the 1960s, Joy made an interesting appearance on the long-running game show To Tell the Truth.
In 1980, she appeared in the television documentary series Hollywood: A Celebration of the American Silent Film, and spoke about her relationship with John Gilbert.
Leatrice Joy married John Gilbert in 1922. The union produced a daughter, Leatrice Gilbert Fountain, but they divorced in 1924 on the grounds of Gilbert being an alleged philanderer. Joy married William S. Hook in 1931.
In her later years Leatrice Joy retired to Greenwich, Connecticut.
She died in 1985 of acute anemia in Riverdale, Bronx, New York and was interred at the Saint Savior Episcopal Churchyard in Old Greenwich, Fairfield County, Connecticut.
For her contribution to the motion picture industry, Leatrice Joy was awarded a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6517 Hollywood Blvd., in Hollywood, California.—wikipedia
Mary Duncan went to Hollywood after critics praised her acting in the lead in “The Shanghai Gesture” on Broadway. While making Five and Ten (1931), she became friends with the film’s lead, Marion Davies. The two attended a polo match, where Davies introduced Duncan to Stephen “Laddie” Sanford, an international polo star and director of the Bigelow-Sanford Carpet Company. She and Sanford married in 1933, after which she retired from films and moved with him to Palm Beach, Florida. They also maintained three homes in the New York area. In retirement, she devoted herself to philanthropic works, doing in major fund-raising for several charities. In addition, the Sanfords were socially very prominent, and for many years the former Mary Duncan reigned as the grande dame of Palm Beach society. A neighbor who became a close friend was Rose Kennedy, mother of the late President, and among those the Sanfords entertained at their Pal Beach mansion were the King and Queen of Jordan and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. She continued her charity work until very late in life, and died quietly in her sleep at the age of 98.—IMDb
Joaquim was born in 1964 at Sabugal, a small village in the north of Portugal. When he was sixteen he moved to Lisbon to live alone. He spent his time at the cinematheque and graduated at the Portuguese National Film School.
As he wanted to make films, Joaquim established Rosa Filmes, an independent film company. His first film, Corte de Cabelo (Haircut), was the portrait of the wedding day of a girl and a boy from the first generation of portuguese living integrated in the European Union. It was presented at the official competition of the 48th Locarno Film Festival in 1995, and would win four international awards in the festival circuit. The film had a commercial release in Portugal and France, and was received both by the audience and the critics as a breakthrough, being today considered the work which captured the portuguese youth of the nineties.
By that time, Joaquim opened the way for his friends to make their first features in Rosa Filmes, like João Pedro Rodrigues and Manuela Viegas, and continues doing it today with a new generation of portuguese directors.
One day Joaquim was invited to show Corte de Cabelo at Sarajevo. It was the end of the war. He started filming there in a kind of awe, as destruction returned to Europe once again, under the passive eyes of the other countries. But he couldn’t finnish the film. So he returned to Bosnia when he realized his film was not about the war, but about it’s consequences, how the displaced persons and divided families were affected in their lives, not only in their sense of space and community, but also in their sense of future.
What happened in Bosnia made him see the destruction that was happening through economic acceleration in his own country, mainly in the rural areas, where people also fled and left vast regions totally empty. He started making a film in the land of his childhood, about a mother and his son, who run away, trying desperately to reach Lisbon. Both films, Diários da Bósnia (Bosnia Diaries) and Mulher-Polícia (The Policewoman) were made simultaneously, influencing each other.
In 2003 Mulher-Polícia was in the official selection of the 53rd Berlin Film Festival (Panorama) and received awards in festivals in Italy, Spain and Cuba. Bosnia Diaries had it’s première in 2005 at the 10th Pusan International Film Festival, as the festival was interested in the film as a symbol of the consequences of cold war which still hangs over the divided Korea.
On Deste Lado da Ressureição (This Side of Resurrection) a contemporary portuguese family is divided in it’s foundation, as Portugal is collapsing as a society. And the children of that family, in their solitude and desperation, while hurting each other, are in fact trying to connect, not knowing that there’s not only the way of history, but also the way of grace.

“I don’t mean they [American men] are lousy lovers, I just think they are little boys who don’t know what they want. In America, you don’t have romances, you have affairs. And these affairs really lack class.”
Statuesque, seductive French leading lady who underwent several early career changes before settling on the acting profession. Corinne Calvet first ventured into the field of criminal law (at the Sorbonne), then gained qualification as an interior decorator with an appreciation of fine arts and antiques. After studying at the L’ecole du cinema in Paris, she made her debut on the stage and also worked as a radio hostess. Small film roles followed. From the time Corinne was ‘discovered’ by famous producer Hal B. Wallis, brought to America, and signed to a contract with Paramount in 1947, her life developed into a decade-long roller-coaster of feuds, lawsuits, publicity stunts and even an attempted suicide by sleeping pills.
Corinne’s Hollywood career got off to a turbulent start, the fiery actress heatedly challenging Wallis over the size of her salary. In spite of growing animosity between her and the producer, she was eventually cast in her first Paramount picture, Rope of Sand (1949) , a film noir set in South Africa and co-starring Burt Lancaster and Paul Henreid. The film emphasized Corinne’s sultry appeal and her sexy, somewhat husky voice. She played a nightclub singer, which worked well since she could actually sing (and did so at the famed Manhattan night club Le Cupidon in 1952). The New York Times review (August 4th, 1949) remarked that the cast, though playing somewhat shady characters, were “all products of good acting, and therefore are strangely interesting”.
“Rope of Sand” garnered mostly good reviews and was certainly one of the better roles Corinne was to find in Hollywood. Though she featured opposite a number of big-name stars, such as Danny Kaye and James Cagney, she was largely consigned to be the ornamental French dessert. Of her part in On the Riviera (1951), Bosley Crowther commented that she was “pretty, but neglected” (NY Times May 24th, 1951). Corinne (Miss Golden Globe 1952), later gave vent to her frustration at having never been given a proper chance to display her acting range in her 1983 memoir ‘Has Corinne Been a Good Girl?’.
The headlines made in her private life often overshadowed her screen career. One highly publicised (and apparently staged) incident had her suing actress Zsa Zsa Gabor over a statement made to, among others, a newspaper columnist, about Corinne’s French background being a studio invention. In another more bizarre instance in 1967, her then-boyfriend claimed in court that she had ‘used voodoo on him’ in order to retain control of certain financial assets. There were also two acrimonious and very public divorces to actors John Bromfield and Jeffrey Stone.
From the mid 1950’s, Corinne began to appear in international co-productions, dividing her time between Los Angeles and her lavishly furnished top floor apartment at the Avenue MacMahon, near the Arc de triomphe, in Paris. After the publication of her memoir in 1983, Corinne retired from acting and re-invented herself as a therapist, specialising in hypnosis. She settled down in Santa Monica, where she died in June 2001.—IMDb
Rossana Podestà (born 20 June 1934 in Tripoli) is a former Italian actress.
She was born in the Italian colony of Libya, where she spent her first years in Tripoli and later moved to Rome after World War II. She still lives in Italy, in Dubino (Sondrio province), together with the famous mountain climber, explorer and journalist Walter Bonatti.
Podestà’s most memorable role was as Helen in Helen of Troy, produced by Robert Wise in 1956. She could not speak English so she learned her lines by rote with a voice coach. The movie gave Podestà international exposure, and she performed alongside a young Brigitte Bardot. Thanks to her starring in the Mexican film Rosanna (film), she became very popular in Latin America.
Podestà also worked in the movie Ulisse, directed by Mario Camerini, and in the sixties and seventies she acted in some romantic movies, including Paolo il caldo and Il prete sposato. Her last performance was in 1985’s Segreti segreti, directed by Giuseppe Bertolucci.
She married and then divorced movie producer Marco Vicario.—wikipedia

I liked Michael Powell. Everybody warned me against him and thought he was this, that and the other. He did have strange clothes, wearing jodhpurs to come to work, and sometimes he looked like he was carrying something you use to deal with horses. But he was a gentleman. Nice and polite, and enormously talented.
Shirley Anne Field (b. 27 June 1938, Bolton, Lancashire) is a British actress who has performed on stage, film and television since 1955.
Shirley Anne Field was born Shirley Broomfield. She was the third of four children with two elder sisters and a younger brother. At the age of six she was placed in the National Children’s Home at Edgeworth, near Bolton and four years later was moved to another children’s home in Blackburn, where she attended Blakely Moor School for Girls. She subsequently returned to Edgeworth until she was 15 when she moved to a Children’s Home hostel in London training as a typist while still attending school.
After a course at the Lucy Clayton School and Model Agency she became a photographic model for pin-up magazines like Reveille and Titbits. She was subsequently spotted by Bill Watts, who ran a theatrical agency, who obtained a number of uncredited extra roles in various late fifties British films. Her first appearance in a film was as an extra in Simon and Laura (1955). Her movie breakthrough was when she was chosen by Laurence Olivier to play the prime female role in The Entertainer, 1960. The same year she appeared in probably her best known role as Doreen, the would-be girlfriend of rebellious Arthur Seaton (played by Albert Finney) in the influential British New Wave film Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (Her co-star Finney previously had a small role in The Entertainer). During the 1970s she spent some time on the stage before returning to films and TV appearances, in both the US and UK Television, in the 1980s, 90s, and 2000s.
She married the aristocratic RAF pilot and racing driver Charles Crichton-Stuart (1939 – 2001) on 7 July 1967 and they had one daughter, Nicola Crichton-Stuart, who was born the same year. The marriage subsequently ended in divorce during the late 1970s. She wrote her autobiography A Time for Love (1991).—wikipedia
The art is there from the very beginning. This is what it’s all about. From your first plié you are learning to become an artist. In every sense the word you are poetry in motion. And if you are fortunate enough, as I was, to be connected with the genius of Balanchine, then you are not only poetry in motion, but you are actually the music. In my mind, that is what it’s all about.
Maria Tallchief (born January 24, 1925) was the first Native American to become prima ballerina. From 1942 to 1947 she danced with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, but she is even better known for her time with the New York City Ballet, from its founding in 1947 through 1965.
Her full name was Elizabeth Maria Tallchief; her family called her Betty Marie. She was born in Fairfax, Oklahoma to a father who was a chief in the Osage Nation and a Scots-Irish mother.
Of her childhood she wrote, “I was a good student and fit in at Sacred Heart (Catholic school). But in many ways, I was a typical Indian girl — shy, docile, introverted. I loved being outdoors and spent most of my time wandering around my big front yard, where there was an old swing and a garden. I’d also ramble around the grounds of our summer cottage hunting for arrowheads in the grass. Finding one made me shiver with excitement. Mostly, I longed to be in the pasture, running around where the horses were…”.
She enjoyed music, dancing and ballet. Her desire to pursue a career in the arts constituted a considerably challenging dream for a Native American child in those days. The family moved to Beverly Hills, California in 1933, where she studied ballet with Bronislava Nijinska for five years. Madame Nijinska’s philosophy of discipline made sense to Tallchief. “When you sleep, sleep like a ballerina. Even on the street waiting for the bus, stand like ballerina”. Betty Marie continued to work hard and mastered technical skills well beyond her years. She got her inspipiration of ballet at a native American festival.
Tallchief left Los Angeles at the age of 17 and auditioned in New York City. She joined the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and quickly rose to the status of featured soloist. At the suggestion of Agnes de Mille, she adopted the name Maria Tallchief.
Russian-born choreographer George Balanchine wrote several of his most famous works for her. The two were married on August 16, 1946; the marriage ended in 1952. They had no children. She was the first prima ballerina of the New York City Ballet from 1947 to 1960, where Balanchine was the principal choreographer. Her performance of Balanchine’s The Firebird in 1949 and their earlier collaboration at the Paris Opera elevated Maria Tallchief onto the world stage. She also originated the role of the Sugarplum Fairy in Balanchine’s version of The Nutcracker, in 1954.
Tallchief continued to dance with the New York City Ballet and with other groups until her retirement in 1965. With her sister Marjorie, she founded the Chicago City Ballet in 1981 and served as its artistic director until 1987. From 1990 to present she has been artistic advisor to Von Heidecke’s Chicago Festival Ballet.
After her marriage to Balanchine ended, she later married Henry “Buzz” Paschen, a Chicago builder, on June 3, 1956. The latter marriage lasted until his death in 2003. They had one daughter, Elise Paschen (born 1959), an award-winning poet who served as the Executive Director of the Poetry Society of America from 1988 to 2001, and currently teaches in the writing program at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Maria Tallchief’s younger sister, Marjorie Tallchief, also had a successful career as a ballet dancer and was for several years “première danseuse étoile” of the Paris Opera Ballet. She worked with her sister Maria many times over the years.—wikipedia

[Julia Cafritz] There are some girls who are doing some stuff in their bedroom that they put out in small numbers. I don’t know how to account for it. It seems right in this instant—this instant seems devoid of particularly interesting women in any sphere of music. And the ones that are interesting have always been there. But I’d say there aren’t many boys doing it either. Maybe they’re having babies.
Free Kitten is a musical collaboration between Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Pussy Galore’s Julie Cafritz.

“When you start out poor, you don’t know what you’re missing.”
Ruth Roman (born Norma Roman December 22, 1922 – September 9, 1999) was an American actress. One of her most memorable roles was in the Alfred Hitchcock 1951 thriller Strangers on a Train.
She was born in the Boston suburb of Lynn, Massachusetts and was of Russian and Polish descent. As a girl, she pursued her desire to become an actress by enrolling in the prestigious Bishop Lee Dramatic School in Boston. Following completion of her studies Roman headed to Hollywood where she obtained bit parts in several films before being cast in the title role in the thirteen-episode serial Jungle Queen (1945). Married three times, she had one son, Richard, with her first husband, Mortimer Hall. She died at the age of seventy-six in her sleep at her Laguna Beach, California home.
In July 1956, Ruth was just finishing a trip to Europe with Richard, or “Dickie” as he was called as a child, who was three years old at the time. At the port of Cannes, they boarded the Italian passenger liner SS Andrea Doria as First Class passengers for their return trip home to the United States. On the night of July 25, Ruth’s life took an unexpected turn as she found herself and her young son in the middle of an unfolding disaster when the Andrea Doria collided with the Swedish passenger liner MS Stockholm. Ruth was in the Belvedere Lounge when the collision happened and immediately took off her high heels and scrambled back to her cabin barefoot to retrieve her sleeping son. Several hours later she and the other passengers were being evacuated from the sinking liner. Dickie was lowered first into a waiting lifeboat, and before she could follow the lifeboat departed.
