Sara Haden (November 17, 1899 - September 15, 1981) was a character actress in Hollywood films of the 1930's through the 1950's. She was born November 17, 1899 (some sources say 1897) in Galveston, Texas. Haden was the daughter of another character actress, Charlotte Walker, who was active in silent films and early talkies. Haden made her film debut in 1934 (one year after her mother's retirement) in the Katharine Hepburn vehicle Spitfire. Haden later became a MGM contract player in the late 1930's and had smallish roles in many of the studios films, most notably in the Andy Hardy series starring Mickey Rooney cast as the spinsterish Aunt Milly Forrest. Haden made her last film in 1958 but was active on television up until a 1965 guest spot on Dr. Kildare. She was most notable for her stern, humorless ones such as a truant officer in Shirley Temple's Captain January (1936) yet she could play sweet, gentle characters, notably the much-loved teacher Miss Pipps who is unjustly fired in the Our Gang comedy "Come Back Miss Pipps" (1941). Haden's other films include Poor Little Rich Girl (1936), The Shop Around the Corner (1940), Woman of the Year (1942) and The Bishop's Wife (1947). Her television appearances included episodes of Climax!, Bourbon Street Beat, and Bonanza. She was married to film bit player Richard Abbott from 1921 to 1948.
