Ann Dvorak, Scarface
Ann Dvorak is one of the greatest actresses to ever walk the face of the earth. This very fact makes it incredibly frustrating to me that she isn’t better known. Of course anyone who loves old movies and classic Hollywood knows her but the average person would see a picture of her and say, “Oh, she’s beautiful? Who was she???”
I think, with Ann, a lot of the problem is the same as it is with many other talented stars – her films aren’t shown on television as often as a lot of other classics are and, when they are, she usually isn’t the one being spotlighted.
Make no mistake about it, though. The lady was a phenomenal actress.
