Barbara Loden Facts
She had agreed to divorce Elia Kazan in 1979, but her diagnosis of breast cancer, and later, terminal liver cancer, stopped the proceedings.

Stepmother of Nicholas Kazan.

The character of Gwen in her second husband Elia Kazan's best-selling 1967 novel and later film, The Arrangement (1969) , was based on her. Gwen was played by Faye Dunaway in the 1969 movie, which was a terrible flop. Ironically, Dunaway had been Loden's understudy in the 1964 Broadway production of After the Fall (1974) (TV), for which Loden won the 1964 Tony Award for best featured actress in a play. The play, written by Arthur Miller, was directed by Kazan. According to Mark Harris in his 2008 book [i]Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood[/i] (one of which was Bonnie and Clyde (1967), which made Dunaway a star), Dunaway as a tyro actress who was part of Kazan's Lincoln Center repertory company, carefully studied Loden's performance.
