Ann Sheridan an American Original
- Eddie Raines
Great work. I enjoy the movies she starred in. A very talented actress and appeared to be a lady in every sense of the word. Not to mention she was a beautiful woman. I can't help but laugh when I watch the movie opposite Carey Grant in "I was a male war bride". It has some good one liners. I'm thankful for Turner Classic Movies too. Without them we wouldn't see these movies.

thank you to tcm for showing 8 of ann's films today, in particular SHINE ON HARVEST MOON that hasn't been played in approximately 6 years! ann gets overlooked far too often. she had a great rage in her ability to play many roles and I feel Warner Bros didn't take advantage of the talented actress that she was. may we always remember Ann now and in the future. as may have said, she left us way too soon!

ann sheridan make such a great impression on me when i first saw her in "Thank Your Lucky Stars". as years have gone on, i have learned to appreciate not only her beauty but her ability to deliver in a variety of roles. it is sad some of her movies cannot be found on DVD, VHS tape or for that matter on TCM. Navy Blues 1941 and Shine On Harvest Moon 1944 are prime examples of films Ann did & fans, like me, are unable to buy, record or watch. Ann was one of Hollywood's great actresses that was lost to us far too soon. We love you Annie!!
Ann Sheridan gone to soon
I loved tis movie everone in it was so good.But Ann is so beautiful, it wish that she had made many more movies.I hope that truner movies will play more of her early movies i would love to see them.
Ann Sheridan/Edge of Darkness
Finally , The Edge of Darkness. thank you (in August) I have never seen this film, but it is often referred to as one of Ms Sheridan's best....rarely seen.
ann sheridan: the oomph girl
- robert beatty
ann sheridan was a beautiful fine actress was also a popular sex symbol of the world war II era. among her films are "angels with dirty faces", "city for conquest", "torrid zone", "kings row", "they drive by night", "juke girl", "nora prentiss", "the unfaithful" and "i was a male war bride". she co-starred with james cagney, john garfield, george raft and humphrey bogart. she was a tough dame with class.
Great new look!
You've done a fine job TCM filling out this page. Excellent on the trailer section! Thanx. Need more Sheridan onTCM!
finally, a photo of this marvelous and under-rated actress. thank you. now...please show "Edge of Darkness"..
MOST UNDERRATED ACTRESS OF ALL TIME
- Bob Simon
It's a shame that ANN SHERIDAN has never gotten the critical acclaim she MOST CERTAINLY DESERVED. Coul perform any genre. A TRUE TALENT. (BEAUTIFUL). PERSONALITY PLUS.

'Whoah, She SIZZLES'
- rich katanich
'Torrid Zone' just ran on TCM 11/4/06 and as I was looking over the net on a Saturday morning, I kept hearing this smart a** female throwing out lines as if they were on fire! I stopped everything to pay attention and glad I did. I had awareness of Ann Sheridan, of course, but not on this level. I believe the film was made in '40 and of course was not her first. She worked hard to get to 'Torrid Zone' and she stole the film from even Cagney, who was tired of the Cagney/O'Brian 'buddy films' (and so was everyone else). In fact, Cagney, according to TCM's info, added a thin moustache to his look to change things just a bit. The story goes the producer Hellenger told him the Execs did not like the look! In typical Cagney no B S he shot back "...and THEY would know... wouldn't they?" Great stuff. Sheridan continually pops up and has almost 'Torrid' lines that never end. She walked the line of almost being over the top with her persona in this film but does not step over that line. With this film, the 'suits' took notice, big time of her and here career kicked into gear. Good for her. I had never seen anyone throw lines out with such pain and truth and SNAPPINESS as she did in 'Torrid Zone'. See this film and any other piece of her work after '40, and you will be in for a treat.
Deserves more rspect
- Charlie Pettit
Ann Sheridan was a a very versatile performer and should have a better reputation as a wide-ranging actress. She was best as a wise-cracking dame but did well with more serious roles, like King's Row.
- love old movies
The previous comments by tony and Bob Simon were dead on the money. No more to say.
ONE OF THE GREAT ACTRESSES ...
- Bob Simon
ANN SHERIDAN could do it all. Was MUCH UNDERATED and should have been WIDELY RECOGNIZED. She was THE BEST !!!
She Had a Lot More Than "Oomph"!
The most underrated actress of the late 1930s and 40s, she was terrific in comedies and dramas, and could even put across a song when necessary. She had great screen chemistry with everyone from Cagney to Grant,and combined an earthy sexiness with plenty of class. She should have been a much bigger star, but all knowledgeable movie fans have always recognized her talents.
The Oomph Girl
I know she may not have appreciated this title but she darn well deserved it!
