Lycos Movies - Biography - Ann Blyth (555 words)
Ann Blyth had a slightly upturned--some might say "stuck up"--nose that made her just perfect for the role of "let's not get mushy about it, but I'm sleeping with your husband" Veda Pierce in the 1945 Warner Bros. classic, "Mildred Pierce".
With her sweet operatic voice, Blyth was oddly cast in the title role of "The Helen Morgan Story" (1957), based on the life of the torch singer--and, in fact, Blyth had to have her songs dubbed by pop singer Gogi Grant.
Blyth also made a memorable "Twilight Zone" in 1964, as a woman who had found the Egyptian secret of eternal youth--the bite of a scarab --and whose age is only given away by her daughter--a shriveling old sourpuss.
