      Geraldine Fitzgerald

      Geraldine Fitzgerald

      Highest Rated: 96% Wuthering Heights (1939)

      Lowest Rated: 13% Arthur 2: On the Rocks (1988)

      Birthday: Nov 24, 1913

      Birthplace: Dublin, Ireland

      A dark-haired classic beauty from the Dublin stage, Fitzgerald had appeared in several British films before making her Broadway debut in the 1938 Mercury Theater production of George Bernard Shaw's "Heartbreak House" and her Hollywood debut in "Dark Victory" (1939). She is perhaps best remembered for her splendid, Oscar-nominated supporting performance as Isabella, poignantly suffering the pangs of unrequited love, in William Wyler's adaptation of "Wuthering Heights" (1939). Off to a fine start in Hollywood, Fitzgerald played strong-willed women throughout the 1940s. Among her notable performances was as one of the eponymous characters in the highly intriguing "Three Strangers" (1946), in which she more than held her own opposite Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre. After being put on suspension for protesting too many dull studio-chosen roles, though, Fitzgerald found that by the end of the decade her screen career had virtually petered out.
