Luise Ranier

Luise Ranier

   The oldest living Oscar winning actress will be celebrating her 100th birthday next week. Luise Ranier won back to back Academy Awards in 1936 & 1937 for The Great Ziegfeld and The Good Earth.  Her small role in Ziegfeld led to the creation of the Best Supporting Acting award the following year.

   She made two memorable television appearances on Combat and The Love Boat. I recently watched the episode on Combat, and found her to be compelling and as gifted an actress as she was in the 1930’s.

   Happy Birthday to Luise Ranier, who lives quietly in London.





Until next time>                               “never forget”
