MINI BIO:

Waif-like blonde Eva Marie Saint was seen playing harried heroines or in sympathetic roles. She made her first film, On the Waterfront, at the age of 30 (fortunately she looked very young for her age) and won an Academy Award for it. Proper casting for her, however, proved elusive and she has not always made the impact that she might.

Eva Marie Saint Facts
As for the charming little town of Bedford Falls (the home town of Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed), in "It's a Wonderful Life", alas, it was a temporary town set built for the movie in the San Fernando Valley. The area was part of RKO's movie ranch at the time. The "Bedford Falls" set was torn down soon after the filming ended in 1946, and the area was sold to developers in the early 1950's and built in with nondescript track homes. The land is in the city of Encino, just west of the San Diego (405) Freeway, on Burbank Blvd, between Louise Avenue and the Balboa Sports Center park. But all you'll find there now are modern residential homes.

She studied drama at HB Studio in Greenwich Village in New York City.

Although the part of Edie Doyle properly is a lead, producer Sam Spiegel listed Eva Marie Saint as a Supporting Actress in the hopes of getting her a nomination. The ploy worked, and she won the Oscar.
