Early life

Wyman was born Sarah Jane Mayfield. Although her birthdate has been widely reported for many years as January 4, 1914, research by biographers and genealogists indicates that she was born January 5, 1917.[2][3][4][5][6] The most likely reason for the 1914 date is that she added to her age when beginning her career as a minor in order to work legally.[7] She may have changed her January 5 birthdate to January 4 to coincide with that of her daughter Maureen Reagan. After Wyman's death, a release posted on her official website confirmed these details.[1] is the 4th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Maureen Elizabeth Reagan Revell (January 4, 1941 – August 8, 2001) was the daughter of former President Ronald Reagan and his first wife, Jane Wyman. ...


Her parents were Manning Jeffries Mayfield (1895-1922), a meal-company laborer, and (Gladdys) Hope Christian (1895-1960), a doctor's stenographer and office assistant.[8] In 1921, her parents divorced, and her father died unexpectedly the following year at age 27. After her father's death, her mother moved to Cleveland, leaving her to be raised by foster parents, Emma and Richard D. Fulks (1862-1928), the chief of detectives of Saint Joseph,[2][9] and she took their surname unofficially, though it appeared on her school records as her actual surname.[10] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


Her unsettling family life resulted in few pleasurable memories during her youth. Wyman later recalled: "I was raised with such strict discipline that it was years before I could reason myself out of the bitterness I brought from my childhood."[3]


In 1928, around age 11, she moved to southern California with her foster mother, but it is not known for certain if she attempted a career in motion pictures at this time, or if the relocation was due to the fact that some of Fulks' children lived in the area. In 1930 the two moved back to Missouri, where Sarah Jane attended Lafayette High School in Saint Joseph. That same year she began a radio singing career, calling herself "Jane Durrell" and adding years to her birthdate to work legally since she would have been under age.

Career

Early career

After Jane dropped out of Lafayette in 1932, at age 15, she returned to Hollywood, taking on odd jobs as a manicurist and a switchboard operator, before obtaining small parts in films The Kid from Spain (as a "Goldwyn Girl") (1932), My Man Godfrey (1936) and Cain and Mabel (1936). After changing her surname from Durrell to Wyman, she began her career as a contract player with Warner Bros. in 1936. Her big break came the following year, when she received her first starring role in Public Wedding, but it would be nine long years before her movie career finally took off.

In 1939, Wyman was cast in another starring role, in Torchy Plays With Dynamite.

Wyman finally gained critical notice in the film noir The Lost Weekend (1945). She was nominated for the 1946 Academy Award for Best Actress for The Yearling (1946), and won two years later for her role as a deaf-mute rape victim in Johnny Belinda (1948).

In an amusing acceptance speech, perhaps poking fun at some of her long-winded counterparts, Wyman took her statue and said, "I won this by keeping my mouth shut, and that's what I'm going to do now."


The Oscar win gave her the ability to choose higher profile roles, although she still showed a liking for musical comedy. She worked with such directors as Alfred Hitchcock on Stage Fright (1950), Frank Capra on Here Comes the Groom (1951) and Michael Curtiz on The Story of Will Rogers (1952). She starred in The Glass Menagerie (1950), Just for You (1952), Let's Do It Again (1953), The Blue Veil (1951) (another Oscar nomination), the remake of Edna Ferber's So Big (1953), Magnificent Obsession (1954) (Oscar nomination), Lucy Gallant (1955), All That Heaven Allows (1955), and Miracle in the Rain (1956).

Television

Her first guest-starring television role was on a 1955 episode of General Electric Theatre. This appearance led to roles on Summer Playhouse, Lux Playhouse, Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse, Checkmate, The Investigators, and Wagon Train. She also served as hostess of The Bell Telephone Hour and Bob Hope Presents The Chrysler Theatre. She had telling roles in both The Sixth Sense and Insight, among other programs.

Wyman also hosted an anthology television series, Jane Wyman Presents the Fireside Theater, for which she was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1957. During her tenure as host, however, ratings steadily declined, and the show ended after three seasons. Wikipedia does not yet have an article with this exact name. ...


She was later cast in two unsold pilots during the 1960s and 1970s. After those pilots were not picked up, Wyman went into semi-retirement and remained there for most of the 1970s, though she made guest appearances on series such as Charlie's Angels and The Love Boat.

Falcon Crest

Wyman's career enjoyed a resurgence when she was cast as the scheming Californian vintner and matriarch Angela Channing in the primetime soap opera Falcon Crest, which ran from 1981 to 1990. The series was created by Earl Hamner, who had created the hit series The Waltons a decade earlier. Ex-husband Ronald Reagan apparently encouraged Wyman to take the role, after actress Barbara Stanwyck had turned it down. In its first season, Falcon Crest was a ratings hit, behind Dallas but initially ahead of rival soap Dynasty. The term vintner is applied to wine merchants as well as (erroneously) winemakers. ...

For her role as Angela Channing, Wyman was nominated for a Soap Opera Digest Award five times (for Outstanding Actress in a Leading Role and for Outstanding Villainess: Prime Time Serial), and was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award in 1983 and 1984. That same year, she won the Golden Globe for Best Performance By an Actress in a TV Series. Later in the show's run, Wyman suffered several health problems. In 1986, she had abdominal surgery which caused her to miss two episodes while her character simply "went missing" under mysterious circumstances. In 1988, she missed another episode due to ill-health and was told by her doctors to avoid work. However, she wanted to continue working and she completed the rest of the 1988-1989 season while her health was still deteriorating. Months later in 1989, Wyman collapsed on the set and was hospitalized with diabetes and a liver ailment. Her doctors told her that she should end her acting career. Wyman was absent for most of the ninth and final season of Falcon Crest in 1989-1990 (her character was written out of the series by being comatose in a hospital bed). Going against her doctor's advice, she returned for the final three episodes in 1990, even writing a soliloquy for the series finale. Wyman ultimately appeared in 208 of the show's 227 episodes.

Co-starring on the show were familiar actors, Robert Foxworth as Angela's nephew, Chase Gioberti, and Susan Sullivan in the role as Chase's wife and Angela's niece, later daughter-in-law, Maggie Gioberti Channing. A strong connection and respect for each other developed between Wyman and Sullivan during the show's long run. Sullivan said of her mentor, "Jane was a very strong influence". She also commented about Wyman's determination to stay on Falcon Crest: "Jane is the most professional person I have ever worked with. I have seen her battle through illness and fatigue and still keep working. She says 'Let's get this done. We have a job to do,' and everyone gets behind her. She is always willing to help younger actors. She gave instructions nicely and with humour. She once said to me, 'You can tell anybody anything if you do it with humor'. She ruled the set with a kind and intelligent hand." Main title caption from Falcon Crest. ...

After Falcon Crest, Wyman only acted once more, playing Jane Seymour's screen mother in a 1993 episode of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Following this, Wyman retired from acting permanently. Wyman had starred in 83 movies, two successful TV series, and was nominated for an Academy Award four times, winning once. For the actress, see Jane Seymour (actress). ...

Personal life

Marriages and children

It has been rumored that on April 8, 1933, Wyman (then Sarah Jane Mayfield) married Ernest Eugene Wyman (or Weymann), a salesman; the marriage was mentioned in Dutch, a biography of Ronald Reagan. In the absence of any marriage certificate or other proof of this union, American geneaologist William Addams Reitwiesner suggests that Jane Wyman adopted her professional surname from her German-born foster mother, Emma (Reise) Fulks, who was previously married to Dr. M. F. Weyman, a St. Louis, Missouri ophthalmologist[11] [4] by whom she had several children who lived with Jane Wyman in her youth.

In 1938, Wyman co-starred with Ronald Reagan in Brother Rat (1938), and its sequel Brother Rat and a Baby (1940).

She and Reagan had three children; Maureen Elizabeth Reagan (1941–2001), Michael Edward Reagan (adopted 1945, born March 18, 1945), and Christine Reagan (born prematurely June 26, 1947 and died the following day).
