The Actress (1953)

Is this the same Ruth Gordon who was in Harold and Maude? What a great cast this is for a biopic on such a person who was still alive and in her prime at the time. How flattering!

Of course it's the same Ruth Gordon. Ruth Gordon and husband Garson Kanin also wrote many scripts together. They were great friends of Hepburn and Tracy and wrote some hilarious scripts for them, PAT AND MIKE, ADAM'S RIB. Ruth Gordon was a treasure.

I met Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin professionally many years ago. He was charming; she was sort of distant (it was her husband's gig). She did sign my copy of Harold and Maude (the book) though. I also worked with Teresa Wright -- lovely, sweet, caring woman; great actress. 


Teresa did a great imitation of Ruth Gordon. She said Ruth spoke with an accent that was sort of a combination of New England and Broadway New York.
