Marie Windsor (December 11, 1919--December 10, 2000). Sometimes called "Queen of the Bs" because she appeared in so many noirs and b-movies like Cat-Women of the Moon (1953), Marie Windsor was born Emily Bertelson in Marysvale, Piute County, Utah on December 11, 1919. She got her break into movies when she was seen crying while working as a cigarette girl. Film producer Arthur Hornblow saw the young student actress and as a consolation offered her a screen test - eventually leading to her long film career. The 5'9" actress first memorable role was opposite John Garfield in Force of Evil playing seductress Edna Tucker . Windsor also had large roles in film noir movies including The Sniper, The Narrow Margin, City That Never Sleeps and Stanley Kubrick's heist movie The Killing playing Elisha Cook Jr.'s scheming wife. Later in her career she acted in television, appearing on such shows as Maverick (in episodes "The Quick and the Dead" with James Garner and "Epitaph for a Gambler"), The Incredible Hulk, General Hospital and Murder, She Wrote and Rawhide ("Incident on the Edge of Madness"). After her acting career she became a painter and sculptor. She died of undisclosed causes on the day before her 81st birthday, December 10, 2000. She was one of the 500 stars nominated to become one of the 50 greatest American screen legends as part of the American Film Institute's 100 years.
