Eva Marie Saint Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jul 4, 1924
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

After studying briefly at Bowling Green State University, New Jersey-born actress Eva Marie Saint entered the hectic world of live television. With a coolness and maturity that belied her youthfulness, Saint made an excellent impression in her first important stage appearance, 1953's A Trip to Bountiful. The euphoria attending her winning the Drama Critics Award was doubled by her 1954 Oscar win for her co-starring stint with [[Performer~P8070~Marlon Brando~marlonbrando]] in [[Feature~V36311~On the Waterfront~onthewaterfront]]. The following year, the blonde, graceful actress appeared with Paul Newman in a TV musical version of Our Town (wherein "stage manager" [[Performer~P111632~Frank Sinatra~franksinatra]] introduced the hit song "Love and Marriage"). Saint continued starring in films with everyone from [[Performer~P33168~Bob Hope~bobhope]] ([[Feature~V113081~That Certain Feeling~thatcertainfeeling]], 1956) to [[Performer~P28204~Cary Grant~carygrant]] (in the Hitchcock classic North by Northwest, 1959). A string of mediocre films in the 1970s prompted Saint to seek out more satisfying roles on television before returning to the stage in 1983. More recently, Saint won an Emmy for her performance in the 1989 dramatic special [[Feature~V128134~People Like Us~peoplelikeus]]. A staple of television throughout the 1990s and well into the new millennium, Saint essayed a supporting role in director Wayne Wang's 2005 family comedy Because of Winn Dixie before stepping into the role of the Man of Steel's mother in director Bryan Singer's Superman Returns the following year. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
