An attractive leading lady often cast in well-bred roles, Barbara Rush entered films at the tail end of the studio system, making her debut in a small role in "Molly" (1950), based on the popular radio show "The Goldbergs". She went on to play leading ladies in some top pictures, but appeared in numerous forgettable ones before breaking into TV in the 1960s. Although Rush won her first leading roles in such Paramount films as "The First Legion" (1951), she is probably better remembered as Joan, the woman who loves Paul Newman even after he chooses a job over her hand in marriage, in "The Young Philadelphians" (1959), and opposite Frank Sinatra in "Come Blow Your Horn" (1963). She also had key roles in "The Young Lions" (1958), "The Man" (1972), and an amusing supporting role in "Can't Stop the Music" (1980).
