GALE SONDERGAARD (1899-1985), born Edith Holm Sondergaard
Often sinister, always fascinating to watch.
Haven't you seen Anthony Adverse (1936)? Gale was awarded the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her first film role.
Watch this and then see these other four films.
The Mark Of Zorro (1940) She was the scheming wife of the corrupt governor eventually exposed by Tyrone Power's Zorro.
The Spider Woman (1944) Gale matches wits with Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes and almost gets the upper hand. A favorite performance.
Anna And The King Of Siam (1946) Gale is Lady Thiang, loyal first wife of Rex Harrison's king, a very sympathetic part.
Road To Rio (1947) Gale gets to display her comic talents opposite Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.
