Born June 13, 1910 Character Actress Mary Wickes!
Character Actress Mary Wickes appeared in over 130 roles, playing lots of busybodies, nurses, housekeepers and nuns. Some of my favorite Mary Wickes roles? Well there’s lots, but for a start: Nurse Pickford in Now Voyager, Nurse Preen in The Man Who Came to Dinner and the wonderful Sister Clarissa in The Trouble with Angels and Where Angels Go Trouble Follows!
