Eunice Mary Quedens was born on this date in Mill Valley, California in 1908. We, of course, know her today as one of the most talented and best-loved stars of all time, Eve Arden.
I love so many of Eve Arden’s movies and ALL of her performances. The film pictured here, Anatomy of a Murder (1939, directed by Otto Preminger) stands out as one of my very favorite Eve Arden films. The movie also stars James Stewart, Arthur O’Connell, Lee Remick, Ben Gazzara, Brooks West, and George C. Scott.
Brooks West and Eve Arden were married from 1952 to his death in 1984. Remarkably enough, this is the only movie Brooks made… when you see just how good he was, it’s absolutely shocking!
Eve Arden is one of the most talented actresses to ever star on radio or the big (or small!) screen. She brought so much charisma and spark to every film… every scene. She truly was one in a million.
You can find Anatomy of a Murder on dvd (Amazon link) or watch it right away on Prime Video.
