Ann Savage Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Feb 19, 1921
  • Died: Dec 25, 2008
  • Birth Name: Bernice Maxine Lyon

Former model Ann Savage signed her first film contract at Columbia, where she reportedly spent much of her time keeping lascivious studio head Harry Cohn at arm's length. It was always a bit off-putting to watch Savage play standard distressed damsels in films like [[Feature~V83279~After Midnight With Boston Blackie~aftermidnightwithbostonblackie]] (1946); her true forte was portraying hard-boiled babes who spelled trouble. Savage's most famous screen portrayal, that of a blackmailing hitchhiker who comes to a sudden and unexpected bad end, can be found in what was probably her cheapest picture: the 1946 cult favorite [[Feature~V13446~Detour~detour]]. Quitting films cold in 1953, Ann Savage made a screen comeback in 1986, playing a nun in Fire With Fire. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
