Bankhead, Tallulah (Brockman)


Bankhead, Tallulah (Brockman)
born Jan. 31, 1902, Huntsville, Ala., U.S.
died Dec. 12, 1968, New York, N.Y.

U.S. film and stage actress.

Born to a prestigious family (her father became a prominent congressman), she made her Broadway debut in 1918 and achieved fame on the London stage in The Dancer (1923). Her vivid presence and throaty voice contributed to her singular performances in the hit plays The Little Foxes (1939), The Skin of Our Teeth (1942), and Private Lives (1946). She made films such as A Woman's Law (1928) and Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat (1944) but remained primarily a stage performer. Her final stage appearance was in The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore (1964).
