Meyer, who thought her real name sounded too much like "sewer". Originally a professional dancer, Crawford made her film debut in 1925. She won a Best Actress Academy Award for Mildred Pierce (1945) and was nominated for Best Actress Oscars for Possessed (1947) and Sudden Fear (1952). A tell-all memoir, Mommie Dearest (1978, later made into a feature film), by her daughter Christina, portrayed Crawford as unfeeling and ruthlessly ambitious.

In 1941, Terry received good notices for The Parson of Panamint , and he would again receive acclaim for his role as Wick Birman, the straight-laced brother of alcoholic Ray Milland, in The Lost Weekend (1945, the year before he and Crawford were amicably divorced). His film credits also include Boys Town (1938), The Young Dr.
Kildare (1939), Wake Island (1942), Bataan (1943) and The Navy vs. The Night Monsters (1966, his last film).
