Gloria Grahame Hallward (November 28, 1923 – October 5, 1981), known professionally as Gloria Grahame, was an American stage, film, and
television actress and singer. She began her acting career in theatre and in 1944 made her first film for MGM. Despite a featured role in It's a Wonderful Life (1946), MGM did not believe she had the potential for major success, and sold her contract to RKO Studios. Often cast in film noir projects, Grahame was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Crossfire (1947), and later won the award for her work in The Bad and the Beautiful (1952). She achieved her highest profile with Sudden Fear (1952), The Big Heat (1953), Human Desire (1954), and Oklahoma! (1955), but her film career began to wane soon afterwards.

Gloria is definitely gorgeous. I love her movies. She passed so young.

I wish people wouldn't say that Gloria Grahame was a blond. Her natural hair color was brown, and she appeared in movies mostly with medium brown colored hair. She appeared in SOME movies as a blond, but she also appeared in more than a couple of movies with dark brown hair.

Is this the lady who played Doug Heffernans mom in King of Queens?
