      Ruth Chatterton

      Ruth Chatterton

      Highest Rated: 91% Dodsworth (1936)

      Lowest Rated: 83% Female (1933)

      Birthday: Dec 24, 1892

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      Respected stage actress who made her screen debut in "Sins of the Fathers" (1928) and, at the relatively advanced age of 35, became a popular star of "women's films" of the early 1930s. An intense, often richly theatrical actress with a fine speaking voice, Chatterton enjoyed rewarding parts in such films as "Sarah and Son" (1930) and "Female" (1933). She played determined or high-powered women, often sexually quite liberated and aggressive, who undergo considerable emotional torment, and brought considerable class and dignity even to routine melodramatic romances. Her success in the first sound version of "Madame X" (1929) also insured that many of her later starring vehicles, such as "Frisco Jenny" (1933), would be variations of that film's glamorously suffering wife-and-mother role.
