Marie Windsor

A product of Marysvale, Utah, Marie Windsor attended Brigham Young University and trained for the stage under Maria Ouspenskaya before she began playing leading roles in B pictures in the late 1940s. Her best work was in the “film noir” category, most notably her role as the manipulative, double-crossing wife of Elisha Cook Jr. in The Killing (1956) (which earned her “Look” magazine’s Best Supporting Actress award). Her favorites among her own films, in addition to “The Killing”, are The Narrow Margin (1952) and Hellfire (1949).
