Susan Hayward, Garden of Evil
As I just posted, Lena Horne was BOTD in 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. Another legendary actress was born on this exact date in Brooklyn as well… Edythe Marrener. Of course, you’ll know her as Susan Hayward.
I find it so fascinating that two legendary stars were born, not only on the same day but in the same city.

Susan Hayward’s many movies include Garden of Evil, David and Bathsheba, I Married a Witch, They Won’t Believe Me, I’ll Cry Tomorrow, and Valley of the Dolls. One of my favorites is (as you’d expect from a Western fanatic) Garden of Evil. She stars alongside Gary Cooper and Richard Widmark in this 1954 film, directed by Henry Hathaway.
It’s a western you don’t hear much about but it’s so darn good! If you’ve never seen it, I hope you’ll find it soon. These three stars are phenomenal together.
