      Sandy Dennis

      Sandy Dennis

      Highest Rated: 96% Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966)

      Lowest Rated: 15% 976-EVIL (1989)

      Birthday: Apr 27, 1937

      Birthplace: Hastings, Nebraska, USA

      Method-trained critics' darling of the 1960s who first made her name on Broadway with Tony Award-winning performances in "A Thousand Clowns" (1962) and "Any Wednesday" (1964). Dennis' high-pitched, neurotic style lent itself to quirky, eccentric roles in films such as "Splendor in the Grass" (1961, her debut). Her memorable performance as the irritating yet vulnerable young faculty wife in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" (1967) earned her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, and her portrayal of an idealistic teacher in an inner-city school in "Up the Down Staircase" (1967) won her a Best Actress accolade from the Moscow Film Festival.
