Ann Sheridan

Biography:Ann Sheridan (February 21, 1915 - January 21, 1967) was an American film actress.

Born Clara Lou Sheridan in Denton, Texas, she was a college student when her sister sent a photograph of her to Paramount Studios. She subsequently entered and won a beauty contest, with part of her prize being a bit part in a Paramount film. She abandoned college to pursue a career in Hollywood.

She made her film debut in 1934, aged 19, in the film Search For Beauty, and played uncredited bit parts in Paramount films for the next two years. Paramount made little effort to develop her talent, so she left, signing a contract with Warner Brothers in 1936, and changing her name to "Ann Sheridan".

Sheridan's career prospects began to improve. Tagged "The Oomph Girl", Sheridan had become a popular pin-up girl by the early 1940s.

She received substantial roles and positive reaction from critics and moviegoers in such films as Angels With Dirty Faces (1938), opposite James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart), Dodge City (1939), opposite Errol Flynn and Olivia De Havilland), Torrid Zone with Cagney and They Drive by Night with George Raft and Bogart (both in 1940), The Man Who Came To Dinner (1942), opposite Bette Davis), and Kings Row (1942, where she received top billing playing opposite Ronald Reagan, Robert Cummings, and Betty Field).

Despite these successes, her career began to decline. Her role in I Was A Male War Bride (1949) gave her another success, but by the 1950s, she was struggling to find work and her film roles were sporadic.

Sheridan appeared in the television soap opera Another World during the mid-1960s, then started a role in the TV series Pistols 'n' Petticoats.

However, she became ill during the filming of its first season, and died from esophageal and liver cancer in Los Angeles, California, aged 51. She had been a chain cigarette smoker for years; Cagney remarked in his autobiography that when the cancer struck, "she didn't have a chance."

Sheridan had been married four times, including a marriage lasting one year to fellow Warners actor, George Brent, but had no children.

On her passing in 1967, Ann Sheridan was cremated, her ashes stored in the vault at the Chapel of the Pines Crematory in Los Angeles until they were () permanently interred at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in 2005.

For her contributions to the motion picture industry, Ann Sheridan has a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame at 7024 Hollywood Boulevard.
