Gladys George

Gladys George (September 13, 1900 - December 8, 1954) was an American actress. Born Gladys Anna Clare in Patten, Maine, she starred on the stage in the 1920s, although she had made several films in the early part of that decade. But it wasn't until 1934 that she started becoming noticed for her film work. In 1936 she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for Valiant Is the Word for Carrie. She also appeared in The Roaring Twenties in 1939, Madame X in 1940, The Way of All Flesh in 1946 and The Best Years of Our Lives in 1951. She is perhaps best known to modern audiences as the wife of Miles Archer in The Maltese Falcon.
