Ann Blyth Bio: Ann Blyth was an American singer and actress who had a rather impressive net worth. Born Ann Blyth in Westport, Connecticut, she was an instantly popular star with audiences, who appreciated her sunny disposition and gentle manner. Ann Blyth also had a rather interesting background as the daughter of a well to do family. She was supposedly the only child of a wealthy film director and her mother continually struggled with raising Blythe, while creating other actress siblings. Ann Blyth attended the prestigious Rhode School of Art, from which she graduated in 1931. After that, Blythe concentrated on her acting career, which earned her a number of small parts in movies and musicals, as well as appearances on Broadway.
What Blythe did in her career is not particularly remarkable, as an actress she simply took on the parts that came to hand, however, there are elements of Blythe’s early career which are noteworthy. Ann Blyth went on to play the character of Mildred Pierce in several films, the most notable of these being Grease (an incredibly popular movie, which even today is showing in many movie theaters) and later in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. In fact, Blythe actually had a small role in the film adaptation of the book, Grease; it was this role that catapulted Blythe into stardom. In fact, both Mildred Pierce and Ann Blyth have been named as the first women to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which is to this day the most prestigious award a performer can receive.

After this film debut, Blythe only appeared in a handful of films thereafter, but each of these was a masterpiece in itself. Anaristotlesque was one of those films, as was On Your Mark, before her career spanned four movies. Another film which Blythe certainly should have been involved in was Das Boots. This film involved an American who lived in Nazi Germany and Blythe played the American soldier who was sent to find him. The role of Major Frank Burns also deserves mention here.
One other notable actress of World War II who was also an accomplished actress in movies was Dr. James M Connolly. As it turns out, M Connolly was in fact an actor when he was called back from Hollywood to be a medical advisor to the military surgeon general, after he was released from imprisonment after being arrested for shooting down an unarmed civilian. His service in the armed forces brought him many awards, and he was very popular with his peers. As a result, he was asked to join the cast of West Side Boat Club, which featured a number of well-known actors and actresses of the time including Ann Blyth. It is clear that as a result of this, M Connolly was looking to move into the limelight, and did so successfully in his film debut.
In his second film, Ann Blythe again played the role of the schoolteacher’s Assistant, though this time he was the school bully. His role in this film, Claudette Colbert, is well-known today, and Blythe’s performance is particularly commendable given that he was not particularly well known at the time. He did star turns in a number of other films afterwards, notably Leaving Loved Ones (which starred Yul Brynner, and was very good), and The Man Who Played With People (also starring Yul Brynner, and also had some fantastic John Aston).
When it comes to Ann Blythe as a leading character, we can say that he was probably the best ever. His skills as a character actor are almost unparalleled, and the sheer professionalism with which he presented his character make his career even more remarkable. Ann Blythe was born in Northumberland, and studied drama at the University of Northumbria, where he became known for his elegant accent. He went on to work in London, and appeared in such notable films as Dr. Strangelove (allows me to say it was one of the greatest films of all time, and it remains one of the best, regardless of the years), A Time to Kill (which is a brilliant film no matter how you feel about the Cold War), and Romance. Overall, it’s safe to say that we owe Ann Blythe an enormous debt of gratitude, and his contribution to our culture cannot be denied.
