Anne Jackson Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Sep 3, 1926
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Trained at New York's Neighborhood Playhouse and the Actor's Studio, Anne Jackson has been a stage actress since 1944 and a film performer since 1950. On stage, Jackson has frequently co-starred with her husband, [[Performer~P74381~Eli Wallach~eliwallach]]. The couple's near-telepathic rapport with one another has inspired playwrights like [[Performer~P110203~Murray Schisgal~murrayschisgal]] and Terence McNally to fashion plays specifically designed for the Wallachs' talents; their biggest Broadway hit was Schisgal's Luv, in which Jackson and Wallach appeared with [[Performer~P79913~Alan Arkin~alanarkin]]. Anne Jackson's film credits include [[Feature~V48577~Tall Story~tallstory]] (1960), [[Feature~V113793~The Tiger Makes Out~thetigermakesout]] (1967; based on Schisgal's one-act play The Tiger), [[Feature~V43469~The Secret Life of an American Wife~thesecretlifeofanamericanwife]] (1968), [[Feature~V34478~Nasty Habits~nastyhabits]] (1976) and [[Feature~V18953~Funny About Love~funnyaboutlove]] (1989); the film she is best remembered for is [[Feature~V30381~Lovers and Other Strangers~loversandotherstrangers]] (1968), in which Jackson's mother-of-the-bride character spent half her time sobbing hysterically in the bathroom. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
