Ann Sheridan Overview:

Legendary actress, Ann Sheridan, was born Clara Lou Sheridan on Feb 21, 1915 in Denton, TX. Sheridan died at the age of 51 on Jan 21, 1967 in Los Angeles, CA and was laid to rest in Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, CA.


Tough but hopeful; those were the characters that this fair-haired American actress played in her heyday, even before she became world famous as the "oomph girl." She'd been kicked around, but was still an optimist: the mold suited the wartime years, and the wide-faced, mockingly-smiling star herself, who had appeared in numerous small roles before hitting the big time. Married to Edward Norris (1911-2002) from 1936 to 1939 and George Brent from 1942 to 1943, first and second of three. Died from cancer.

She was honored with one star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of Motion Pictures. Sheridan was never nominated for an Academy Award.
