Died: December 30, 2014 in London, England, United Kingdom
Biography
Luise Rainer (1910-2014), was awarded successive Best Actress Academy Awards for The Great Ziegfeld (1936, which also earned her the moniker "The Viennese Teardrop") and The Good Earth (1937). She was the first woman to win two Oscars, and the first actor to win two consecutive ones. She later considered the back-to-back Oscar wins a misfortune, raising expectations too high, and she is considered by many the most glaring example of the "Oscar jinx."  She moved from the U.S. to England in the early 1940s and largely retired from film. Her patron, producer Irving Thalberg had died, and MGM head Louis B. Mayer did not like her. She reappeared years later on TV, even starring in an episode of The Love Boat (1984), and played a grandmother in the 1997 film The Gambler.
