Hope Lange Facts
Lange earned the only Oscar nomination of her career for her supporting role in the provocative film Peyton Place (1957) in which she murders her rapist stepfather.

When she co-starred with Marilyn Monroe on Bus Stop (1956), Monroe disliked the presence of a younger blonde and sent a series of memos to producers and the director, even suggesting that Lange be made to dye her hair brown.

She delivered a stirring eulogy at the funeral for her close friend, Natalie Wood.
