MINI BIO:

Distinguished Aline MacMahon was an American stage actress originally intended for stardom by Warners when they brought her to the screen. But her horsey, mournful face was obviously destined for more interesting roles than straight leads, and she proved as adept with wisecracks, as with wisdom. When her studio contract was over, she again devoted the majority of her time to the theatre. Nominated for an Academy Award for "Dragon Seed".
