Born June 25, 1903 Character Actress Anne Revere!
Anne Revere appeared in over 45 film and TV roles. She played her share of hard-working and wise mothers, as well as sympathetic and sometimes sharp-tongued friends. She won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for National Velvet and was nominated twice more for The Song of Bernadette and Gentleman’s Agreement.
And, my favorite bit of trivia about Anne Revere: she was a direct descendant of American Revolution Hero Paul Revere!
