Biography | show moreshow less
MADGE KENNEDY (1891-1987) was a Broadway star by 1912, and she found similar success in films after being signed to Goldwyn Pictures by Sam Goldwyn within three months after he founded his studio. Goldwyn gave Kennedy the title of "winsome", and she lived up to the name in her light comedies, which included Baby Mine (1917), Our Little Wife (1918) and Dollars and Sense (1920). After leaving Goldwyn Pictures, Kennedy appeared in several films produced by her husband, Harold Bolster, before retiring from the screen and returning to the stage. Coaxed out of retirement by George Cukor for the role of Judge Carroll in his 1952 film, The Marrying Kind, Kennedy began a second career as a character actress, appearing in such films as Lust for Life (1956), The Catered Affair (1956), North by Northwest (1959) and The Day of the Locust (1975). She was also a guest star on a number of TV shows, from Schlitz Playhouse of Stars (1954) to The Odd Couple (1972), and Kennedy had a recurring role as Theodore Cleaver's Aunt Martha Bronson on Leave it to Beaver (1957, 1958, 1959, and 1963).
