Elizabeth Hartman

Elizabeth Hartman

Highest Rated: 93% The Secret of NIMH (1982)

Lowest Rated: 56% The Fixer (1968)

Birthday: Dec 23, 1943

Birthplace: Youngstown, Ohio, USA

This fragile, red-haired actress is best known as the blind heroine of "A Patch of Blue" (1965), for which she earned an Oscar nomination as Best Actress. Hartman went on to grace several other major films in her brief career, notably Sidney Lumet's "The Group" (1966), Francis Ford Coppola's "You're a Big Boy Now" (1967), as an actress tutoring a naive Peter Kastner, and "The Beguiled" (1971), as one of several Southern women who nurse a wounded Union Soldier (Clint Eastwood) during the Civil War. Battling depression and a declining career, the actress became reclusive in the 1980s. Hartman's 1987 death, after she fell from a fifth-floor apartment window, was listed as possible suicide.
