Is portrayed by Annette Bening in Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017).
Profiled in "Killer Tomatoes: Fifteen Tough Film Dames" by Ray Hagen and Laura Wagner (McFarland, 2004).
A painting of Grahame was hanging in the Ellington Room of the Manhattan Plaza, where Grahame maintained an apartment during her last five years according to a January 1990 article about the actress that appeared in "Films in Review.".
Grahame spent her last days in the Liverpool, England home of her friend Peter Turner. She was flown back to New York by her children just hours before her death at St. Vincent's Hospital, Manhattan, aged 57, from stomach cancer and peritonitis. She predeceased her nonagenarian parents; her father died in 1982 and her mother died in 1984. A 1987 biography of Grahame was entitled "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool".
Her busiest period of British and American stage work ended abruptly in 1981 when she collapsed from cancer symptoms during a rehearsal. She wished to remain in Liverpool with her partner, Peter Turner (almost 30 years her junior), but after Turner notified her children of her health condition and impending death, two of her children flew to England to retrieve her, insisting she return to the United States. She died a few hours later that same day of stomach cancer and peritonitis at St.
Grahame eventually moved to England in 1978.
In 1975, she was treated for breast cancer. Five years later, she was diagnosed with cancer again, although it is unclear if this was a new cancer or a metastasis of her breast cancer.
Eight years after divorce from Nicholas Ray, who was 12 years her senior (and reportedly had discovered her in bed with his 13 year old son), and after a subsequent marriage to Cy Howard ended in divorce, in 1960 she married her former stepson Anthony Ray (who was almost 14 years younger than she was. ) This led former husbands Nicholas Ray and Cy Howard to sue Grahame; each man seeking custody of his respective child, putting gossip columnists and scandal sheets into overdrive. Grahame herself underwent electroconvulsive therapy after the ensuing stress caused a nervous breakdown. Surprisingly, however, Grahame and Anthony "Tony" Ray proved a happy couple. The union would be Grahame's longest marriage, lasting almost 14 years (10 years longer than her previous union with Ray's father); the couple had two children, Anthony Jr. and James.
In 1960, Grahame resumed stage acting, combined with TV work and, from 1970, some mostly inferior films. She was described as a serious, skillful actress; spontaneous, honest, and strong-willed; imaginative and curious; incredibly sexy but insecure about her looks (prompting plastic surgery on her famous lips); loving appreciative male company; "a bit loony".
Rumors of being difficult to work with on the set of Oklahoma! (1955) helped sideline her film career from 1956 onward. She also suffered from marital and child-custody troubles.
Was the 37th actress to receive an Academy Award; she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) at The 25th Annual Academy Awards (1953) on March 19, 1953.
Here the same problem resurfaced; her best film in these years was made on loan-out, In a Lonely Place (1950). Soon after, she left RKO.
The 1950s, her best period, brought her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and typecast her as shady, inimitably sultry ladies in seven well-known film-noir classics.
Although her talent and sex appeal were of star quality, she did not fit the star pattern at MGM, who sold her contract to RKO in 1947.
Appeared in three Oscar Best Picture nominees; It's A Wonderful Life (1946), Crossfire (1947) and Greatest Show On Earth (1952), with the last winning in 1952.
Gloria Grahame Hallward, an acting pupil of her mother (stage actress and teacher Jean Grahame), acted professionally while still in high school. In 1944 Louis B. Mayer saw her on Broadway and gave her an MGM contract under the name Gloria Grahame.
Her debut in the title role of Blonde Fever (1944) was auspicious, but her first public recognition came on loan-out in It's A Wonderful Life (1946).
Gloria was not born in 1925 as usually stated, but in 1923.
Grahame's parents first emigrated from the UK to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada in 1911, then moved to Los Angeles, California in 1915. Jean (or Jeanne) McDougall (1890-1894), a Lochranza, Scotland-born stage actress and acting coach, known professionally as Jean Grahame (Gloria's grandmother's maiden name) and London-born decorator, architect and author Reginald Michael Bloxam Hallward (aka Michael Hallward; 1889-1982) both survived their younger daughter. Their first child, actress Joy Hallward (1911-2003), was Gloria's older sister.
Paternal granddaughter of Reginald (1858-1948) and Adelaide (née Bloxam) Hallward (1860-1925). Both were born and raised on the Isle of Wight, England and died in Shorne, Kent, England.
