Eve Arden (April 30, 1908November 12, 1990) was an Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning American actress, who established a lengthy career as a supporting and character actor rather than as a lead actress due, in large part, to the fact, that while tall and slim, she was not a beauty. Her work in film, television, and theatre, and especially her expertise at delivering sharp, wry lines never concealed her warmth as a person and as a performer, which made her among the most fondly remembered actresses of her era.

Early life and career

Arden was born Eunice Quedens (pronounced kwuh-DENZ) in Mill Valley, California to Lucille and Charles Peter Quedens. Her parents divorced when she was a child. Arden said that she was an insecure child, declaring later in life that she needed therapy because her mother was so much more beautiful than her. Mill Valley is a city in Marin County, California, United States located about 11 miles north of San Francisco via the Golden Gate Bridge. ...


At 16, Arden left Tamalpais High School[1] and joined a stock theater company. She made her film debut, under her real name, in the backstage musical Song of Love. She plays a wisecracking showgirl who becomes a rival to the film's star, singer Belle Baker. The film was one of Columbia Pictures' earliest successes.

Career

Film

Her film career began in earnest in 1937 when she appeared in the films Oh Doctor and Stage Door. Her performance in Stage Door, where she portrayed a fast-talking, witty supporting character, gained Arden considerable notice and was to be a template for many of Arden's future roles. Year 1937 (MCMXXXVII) was a common year starting on Friday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... Stage Door is a 1937 film that tells the story of several would-be actresses who live together in a single boarding house. ...


Her many memorable screen roles include a supporting role as Joan Crawford's wise-cracking pal in 1945's Mildred Pierce (for which she received an Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actress), and James Stewart's wistful secretary in Otto Preminger's then-explicit murder mystery, Anatomy of a Murder (1959). (One of her co-stars in that film was husband Brooks West.) She also performed some acrobatics while trying to steal a wallet from Groucho Marx in the Marx Brothers film At the Circus (1939). Joan Crawford (March 23, 1905 – May 10, 1977),[1] was an acclaimed, iconic, Academy Award-winning American actress, arguably one of the greatest from the Golden Age of Hollywood from the 1920s through 1940s. ...

Radio and television

Arden's quick wit made her a natural talent for radio; she became a regular on Danny Kaye's short-lived but memorably zany comedy-variety show in 1946, which also featured swing bandleader Harry James and gravel-voiced character actor-comedian Lionel Stander.

Kaye's show lasted one season, but Arden's display of comic talent and timing set the stage for her to be cast in the role for which she is best known, as Madison High School English teacher Connie Brooks in Our Miss Brooks. Arden portrayed the character on radio from 1948 to 1957, as well as in a television version of the program, which ran from 1952 to 1956. (She would also portray the character in a feature film.) Arden's character clashed with the school's principal, Osgood Conklin (played by Gale Gordon), and nursed an unrequited crush on fellow teacher Philip Boynton (played originally by future film star Jeff Chandler and later in the series by Robert Rockwell). Our Miss Brooks, an American situation comedy, began as a radio hit in 1948 and migrated to television in 1952, becoming one of the earlier hits of the so-called Golden Age of Television, and making a star out of Eve Arden as comely, wisecracking, but humane high school English...

Arden's portrayal of the character was so popular that she was made an honorary member of the National Education Association, received a 1952 award from the Teachers College of Connecticut's Alumni Association "for humanizing the American teacher," and even received teaching job offers. The National Education Association (NEA) is the largest labor union in the United States, representing many of the countrys teachers along with other school personnel. ...


Arden won a radio listeners' poll by Radio Mirror magazine as the top ranking comedienne of 1948-1949, receiving her award at the end of an Our Miss Brooks broadcast that March. "I'm certainly going to try in the coming months to merit the honor you've bestowed upon me, because I understand that if I win this (award) two years in a row, I get to keep Mr. Boynton," she joked. But she was also a hit with the critics; a winter 1949 poll of newspaper and magazine radio editors taken by Motion Picture Daily named her the year's best radio comedienne.


Arden tried another series in 1957 with the eponymous The Eve Arden Show, but it was cancelled after only a few episodes. Year 1957 (MCMLVII) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link displays the 1957 Gregorian calendar). ...


Arden also co-starred with Kaye Ballard in the 1967-1969 situation comedy The Mothers-in-Law, which was produced by her old friend Desi Arnaz after the dissolution of Desilu.

Trivia

  • Legend has it that Arden selected her stage name after seeing the phrases "Evening in Paris" and "Elizabeth Arden" at a cosmetics counter.
  • Arden made a cameo appearance as herself in one of the episodes of I Love Lucy where the Ricardos and the Mertzs were in Hollywood. In episode 114 ("L. A. at Last") Lucy, Fred and Ethel have lunch at the Brown Derby restaurant. Seated in a booth, Lucy and Ethel try to determine whose caricature is drawn on one of the wall tiles in the adjoining booth, both Lucy and Ethel believing that it is of different actresses. To settle the issue, Ethel taps the shoulder of a lady in the adjoining booth, and asks her if the caricature on the tile in their booth is of the actress that she believes that it is, or the actress that Lucy believes that it is. The lady turns around to reveal herself as Eve Arden and answers Ethel, "Neither. It’s Eve Arden."
  • Arden was in the cast of one of the most notable Broadway flops, the 1983 play Moose Murders. Arden, who was 75 at the time of production, had difficulties with remembering her lines in the play and was eventually replaced by actress Holland Taylor. The show opened and closed in the same evening.
