Margaret Sullavan


American actress who reached the peak of her acclaim in the 1943 stage production, "Voice of the Turtle." She began her career in 1933 with a screen test that launched her immediately into starring roles. Throughout her career she produced a total of 16 films, though it was said she was temperamental and hard to work with.

Sullavan's first of four marriages was to Henry Fonda. By 1948 she had lost 50% of her hearing, but she learned to lip-read. She went through unshakable depressions and stays in various sanitariums. She attempted a comeback in 1959 in a touring play. On 1/01/1960, alone in a hotel room before a performance, she overdosed on sleeping pills.
