OTD March 13 - Betsy Blair
2 / 38

2009: Betsy Blair, an Oscar-nominated actress and teenage bride of Gene Kelly, dies of cancer at the age of 85 in London, England. Blair, whose movie career stalled after her enthusiasm for leftist causes landed her on Hollywood's blacklist, earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 1956 for "Marty." She met Kelly in 1941 while she was working as a dancer at a New York City nightclub and they were married when she was 17 years old, divorcing 16 years later in 1957. Some of her other film roles included "The Guilt of Janet Ames," "A Double Life" and "Kind Lady."
