Mary wickes dating

Rated 3.80/5 based on 654 customer reviews

Archives and Steve Taravella was researching a book on the actress Mary Wickes there, Steve asked me what I’d most want to know about Wickes.

Although she had planned a career in law, a favorite professor encouraged her to try drama, and she shifted direction.While there are biographies of almost every important film and TV star, and even a few books that lovingly chronicle the lives of character actors (like, say, Peter Lorre or Warren Oates), who briefly or nearly became stars, Taravella’s may be the first serious account of the life of an actor whose name never appeared above the title.The secret to its excellence is that Taravella approaches Mary Wickes with the same respect and seriousness as one would a Bette Davis or a Barbara Stanwyck.Taravella’s book, which came out last fall, serves as a brilliant rebuke to my reductive answer.It’s one of the most worthwhile works of entertainment scholarship I read last year.
