      Louise Fletcher

      Louise Fletcher

      Highest Rated: 100% The Karen Carpenter Story (1989)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Jul 22, 1934

      Birthplace: Birmingham, Alabama, USA

      An American film and television actress of considerable and quiet strength, Louise Fletcher won the Academy Award in 1975 as the unforgettable, iron-willed Nurse Ratched in Milos Forman's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." The role and subsequent honors were seen by the press as the high point of Fletcher's screen career, since none of the projects that followed, which included "Exorcist II: The Heretic" (1979), "Brainstorm" (1983) and "Invaders from Mars" (1987) matched its box office or critical returns. However, Fletcher worked steadily after "Cuckoo's Nest," earning Emmy nominations for television turns and accepting the notion of "the Oscar curse" with patience and good humor, confident in the knowledge that she had created one of cinema's most enduring villains.
