About Rosalind Russell (1907 – 1976)
Rosalind was born on June 4, 1907 in Waterbury, Connecticut. On November 28, 1976 Rosalind Russell passed away in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California from metastasized breast cancer.

Sometimes Rosalind Russell was credited as Rosalind Russell Brisson, and C.A. McKnight. Rosalind goes by the nickname Roz.

In her forties, Rosalind Russell returned to the stage, touring Bell, Book And Candle in 1951 and in 1953 winning a Tony for Wonderful Town. Russell instantly crystallized her tart comic style, as the gossipy pal in The Women (1939), and as fast-talking reporter Hildy Johnson in His Girl Friday (1940). In 1957 Rosalind Russell received a Tony Award nomination as Best Actress (Dramatic) for Auntie Mame a part she recreated in an Oscar-nominated performance in the film version Auntie Mame (1958). In 1953 Rosalind Russell won Broadway's Tony Award as Best Actress (Musical) for Wonderful Town, a musical based on her film My Sister Eileen (1942), for which she received an Oscar nomination playing the same character.

Rosalind Russell received Oscar nominations for My Sister Eileen (1942), Sister Kenny (1946), Mourning Becomes Electra (1947), and Auntie Mame (1958). The title of Rosalind Russell's 1977 autobiography is Life Is A Banquet, came from a famous line of Auntie Mame's. Rosalind Russell has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1708 Vine Street. In 1972 Rosalind Russell received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for contributions to charity. The play Auntie Mame kept Rosalind Russell on Broadway for two years; the movie version was her last cinematic triumph.
