Character actress Edith Atwater was born in Chicago in 1911. She made her Broadway debut in 1933 and six years later she had a leading role on stage in “The Man Who Came to Dinner”. Her films include “Sweet Smell of Success” in 1957 and “Straitjacket” in 1964. She died in 1985, the same year as her husband Kent Smith.
Anyone who knows me are aware that I am a bit of a movie buff. Over the past few years I have been collecting signed photographs of my favourite actors.
