MINI BIO:The nice thing about Celeste Holm is that she actually looked as though she had a marvellous sense of humor. The blue-eyed blonde American actress and singer, of Norwegian parentage, was the original Ado Annie in the stage version of Oklahoma!, but resisted all screen offers until after World War II. After a mixture of musicals, comedies, and heavy drama (and an Oscar for Gentleman's Agreement), she became best known in wise-cracking roles, and improved most of her (too few) films. Also nominated for Academy Awards on All About Eve and Come to the Stable. Married (4th) to actor Wesley Addy (1912-1996) from 1961. (Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Stars).
