Jane Wyatt Quotes:

Mary Morgan: The Navy's losing a good man, and I'm getting one back.


Aggie Hunter: Don't worry for me. I'm here if you need me. I can't help my own nature. If I love you it's something I can't help, and something that I need. People are what they are and love what they love, and I don't see any sense in trying to be something else. I wouldn't trade it for a box at the opera, the thing I feel for you. And you can't change it or take it away from me. And there you are mister jack in the box.


Estella: Before Miss Havisham died, she told me her teachings were false... that love is worth all the suffering and pain that goes with it.
Pip: Do you believe that, Estella?
Estella: You once told me that you loved me, Pip.
[They embrace]

Jane Wyatt Facts
Was an invaluable member of the March of Dimes charitable organization since 1943. Donations were directed toward the March of Dimes at the time of her death.

Today, those who fondly recall her in the archetypal 1950s family sitcom "Father Knows Best" (1954) may be surprised to learn that when the series debuted in 1954, the show did so poorly in the ratings that CBS canceled it in March 1955. A flood of protests came from viewers insisting that the show be reinstated. The show was moved to an earlier time, and it gradually became a hit.

Received a special tribute as part of the Annual Memorial tribute at The 79th Annual Academy Awards (2007) (TV).
