Her youngest child, son Christopher Brinkman, was the original lead guitarist for the rock group Jane's Addiction (1985-1986). He died of a drug overdose in 1997.


Her final film was as Clara Shaw in 1972's Skyjacked (1972).


In 1967, she appeared in a low-budget suspense yarn called Hot Rods to Hell (1967).


She returned, briefly, to film in Guns of the Timberland (1960) in 1960. The films were sporadic after that.


After The Joker Is Wild (1957) in 1957, Jeanne took time off for her family and to appear in a few television programs.


On Aug. 6, 1956, she obtained an interlocutory divorce decree, each spouse claiming the other has been unfaithful. She also claimed Brooks had been abusive.


She went into production in the film Man Without a Star (1955) which was a hit with audiences and critics.


She went briefly to Warner Brothers for the filming of Duel in the Jungle (1954) in 1954. The film was lukewarm at best. Jeanne, then, signed a contract, that same year, with Universal Studios with promises of better, high profile roles.


Jeanne left Fox after filming Vicki (1953) in 1953, with Jean Peters. She had made 23 films for the studio that started her career, but she needed a well-deserved change. As with any good artist, Jeanne wanted to expand her range instead of playing the girl-next-door types.


Crain, who starred in the original Cheaper by the Dozen (1950), passed away just 12 days before the release of the remake of the that film, Cheaper by the Dozen (2003), starring Steve Martin.


In 1949, Jeanne appeared in three films, A Letter to Three Wives (1949), The Fan (1949), and Pinky (1949). It was this latter film which garnered her an Oscar nomination as Best Actress for her role as Pinky Johnson, a nurse who sets up a clinic in the Deep South.

She lost to Olivia de Havilland for The Heiress (1949).


The year 1947 was an off year for Jeanne, as she took time off to bear the Brooks' first child.


In 1945, Jeanne was cast in State Fair (1945) as Margie Frake who travels to the fair and falls in love with a reporter played by Dana Andrews. Now, Jeanne got a bigger contract and more recognition. Later that year, Jeanne married Paul Brooks on New Year's Eve. Although her mother wasn't supportive of the marriage, the union lasted until her husband's death and produced seven children.


Her next film saw Jeanne elevated to a more substantial part in Home in Indiana (1944) the following year, which was filmed in neighboring Kentucky. The movie was an unquestionable hit.

On the strength of that box-office success, Jeanne was given a raise and star billing, as Maggie Preston, in the next film of 1944, In the Meantime, Darling (1944). Unfortunately, the critics not only roasted the film, but singled out Jeanne's performance in particular.

She rebounded nicely in her last film of the year, Winged Victory (1944). The audiences loved it and the film was profitable.


At the age of 18, Jeanne won a bit part in Fox Studio's film entitled The Gang's All Here (1943) and a small contract.


Won the "Miss Camera Girl of 1942" title in Long Beach, Florida, and given a contract by Fox.
