Actor Marsha Hunt, an iconic star of 1930’s and 1940’s films whose career was disrupted by Hollywood’s blacklist, has died. She was 104.
Roger Memos says she died at her home in Sherman Oaks, California.
Memos wrote and directed the documentary “Marsha Hunt’s Sweet Adversity.”
Hunt was an established actor, appeared on Life magazine covers and was a rising star in the new medium of television when the work dried up due to allegations about her liberal activism.
She concentrated on the theater until more television and film roles came her way again in the late 1950’s.
Among her films were “Flight Command,” “Pride and Prejudice” and “The Human Comedy.”
