Actress Betty Field appeared in movies, television, and theater productions during a career that spanned three decades. Field began her acting career with a role in a London production of "She Loves Me Not." By the late 1930s, however, Field had returned to the U.S., and promptly launched her movie career. One of her first roles was in the classic 1939 film "Of Mice and Men" (playing the character Mae), and further movie appearances followed throughout the 1940s (including 1949's "The Great Gatsby"), before Field made the transition to television. Beginning in the 1950s (and for the remainder of her career), Field's main focus was television, with roles on such programs as "The Untouchables" and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," although she did nab a Laurel Award nomination in 1958 for her work in the film "Peyton Place." After 1968, Field retired from acting altogether, and on September 13, 1973, she died in Hyannis, Massachusetts, from a stroke (at the age of 60).
