MINI BIO:

Waif-like blonde Eva Marie Saint was seen playing harried heroines or in sympathetic roles. She made her first film, On the Waterfront, at the age of 30 (fortunately she looked very young for her age) and won an Academy Award for it. Proper casting for her, however, proved elusive and she has not always made the impact that she might.

The bright new neighborhood is called Bailey Park, in honor of George's late father. In the movie, we see Mr. Martini's family move into the first model home, with much celebrating. Later, during George's world-changing angelic encounter, Bailey Park ceases to exist, because he wasn't there to build it. (The neighborhood returns when Clarence restores his past.)

Well, today it's actually in the city of La Caņada Flintridge, CA (the home of Descanso Gardens), just northwest of
