Great Lady, Great Actress, Great Star!
- David Atkins
Jane Wyman famous for her performances in her Oscar Win Johnny Belinda, her personal favorite The Blue Veil and her most successful Magnificent Obsession. Ms. Wyman was at home in musicals, comedy and drama. I liked her best as the always in control Angela Channing in Falcon Crest; a brilliant portrayal of a strong woman. In real life Ms Wyman was a devout Catholic who converted to her Faith via the example and guidance of her life long friend Loretta Young. Ms. Wyman was always great friends with two other legendary stars Roz Russell and Barbara Stanwyck. In her great career Ms. Wyman worked with Gregory Peck Bob Hope, Fred McMurray, Charlton Heston and one of her favorite co stars Rock Hudson whom she filmed both Magnificent Obsession and All That Heaven Allows. I hold her in great esteem for the way she never ever discussed Ronald Reagan to the press. Ever. A real Lady

I dont remember title
- Barbara Burger
I am wondering if anyone remembers Jane in a movie where she goes to meet her husband to be, but he has gone to oil fields or gold mining. Left without a place to go she opens her suit cases and sells her new clothes which went so well she opened a ladies dress store. Eventually she had a beautiful department store. I saw this in the mid l950's so don't remember a lot of it but she was excellent. If you know the name or remember more than me please write in reviews. Thank you
THE FINEST ACTRESS...
- Mike Burns
...and perhaps the most underrated actress of the 20th Century was JANE WYMAN. She brought just enough pathos or comedy to any role she played to make her appear as normal as your next door neighbor...with sheer brilliance, she actually UNDERplayed each part, sometimes simply acting with an inflection in her voice or a poignant look in her eyes. There was never the silly histrionics, so dated and phony today, of Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, or Katharine Hepburn. In 1951 the Academy Award went to the mannered and overblown Vivien Leigh for "Street Car Named Desire," but the wise movie judges with the Golden Globes overlooked Leigh and gave THEIR best actress award to Jane Wyman in "The Blue Veil"...one of her greatest performances. And perhaps her very best acting two years later in "So Big" did not even draw an Oscar NOMINATION, let alone the prize Wyman so richly deserved.
I was shocked and sad to find that Jane Wyman died this year. Actually, I am not a fan and have only seen her in one movie, The Lost Weekend. I think that TCM did a spectacular job on TCM remembers. The song was wonderful, and very sweet but sad. Bravo TCM, for congratulating and remembering Jane Wyman and the other stars who passed this year.
Great underrated star.
Such a lady, such a star. She will be missed.
Jane Wyman Tribute on TCM
- Mark Williams
I know I don't need to suggest a tribute because I am sure it is planned, but I would like suggest her two Douglas Sirk melodramas be included in TCMs tribute to this great star. We, her fans, will appreciate seeing these films knowing that others will be watching them too.
We will miss her.
- Debbie Morris
Jane entertained us for generations. Still we can watch and appreciate her work thanks to TCM. It has been my privelage to teach my daughter about these film greats, and we have enjoyed many of them together. Jane Wyman was one of the best.
Jane played in "One More Tomorrow"
- Harry Spence
Jane played a strong supporting role to Ann Sheridan and Dennis Morgan. Please show the movie on TCM.
