Teresa Wright, the willowy actress who starred opposite Gary Cooper and Marlon Brando and won a supporting Academy Award in 1942 for "Mrs. Miniver," has died. She was 86.
Wright died Sunday of a heart attack at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut, her daughter, Mary-Kelly Busch, told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Wright's career skyrocketed after her first film, "The Little Foxes" which brought her an Oscar nomination as best supporting actress of 1941. The following year she was honored with two nominations: lead actress as the wife of Lou Gehrig in "The Pride of the Yankees" and supporting actress as Greer Garson's daughter in the wartime saga "Mrs. Miniver."
She also starred in three other classics: Alfred Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt" in 1943; Brando's first film, "The Men" in 1950; and the multiple Oscar winner "The Best Years of Our Lives" in 1946.
Man, I spent a good portion of my childhood crushin' on the Teresa Wright of Pride of the Yankees, Mrs. Miniver and Shadow of a Doubt. I guess I can stop dreaming now.
