American actress on stage and film who was celebrated from the '20s for her electric and throaty performances, as well as a lusty life-style offstage. Starring in London from 1923, her performances on-stage and off made her the toast of the town for seven years. Upon returning to the U.S. in 1930, she resumed her stage career and signed a film contract with Paramount. Her film and TV work were less memorable than her stage performances. Bankhead's autobiography, "Tallulah," was published in 1952.
Bankhead is the daughter of the Speaker of the House, William Bankhead, and her mom died just two weeks after she was born. She had a strict convent education, but received her first taste of stardom in a local beauty contest at age 15. She was married at one time to actor John Emery. She died of pneumonia on 12 December 1968, New York, New York, about six weeks shy of her 67th birthday.

D.C. Doane, "She had no authentic birth data. Two weeks after her birth, her mom died. Her aunt went to record the birth and inadvertently gave her own wedding date; 1902 is the correct year." Bankhead herself said, "about 9:00 PM." Jensen gave 1/31/1903 in "World Astrology," 7/1951, quoting Bankhead. Biography by Lee Israel, "Tallulah Bankhead," gives, "about February 12th," for her birthdate
Sy Scholfield notes that Bankhead's friend Carol Channing writes in her autobiography, "Just Lucky I Guess: A Memoir of Sorts" (Simon and Schuster, 2002), p. 116: "[We] had the same birthday. Also, we were both born at 8:30 at night..."
