Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on October 18th, 1914, Evelyn Venable comes of a literary family, her grandfather being a famous author and poet, and her father a well-known Shakespearean authority. She made her professional debut in a local performance of Dear Brutus, and in 1932 appeared in Cyrano de Bergerac. Then came the role of Ophelia in Hamlet, and her work in this led to her present film contract. She was first seen on the screen in Cradle Song; her more recent films are David Harum (with Will Rogers), Death Takes a Holiday and Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch.
