The Golden Age of Hollywood was something truly special. We saw amazing acting talent bring to life the places and storylines audiences could only dream about — all on the silver screen (and for a relatively small price to see!)
These actors and actresses are beloved in our hearts to this day, and there’s plenty of reason to see why: they made the industry what it is today, and set the standard for how movies should be done. The Golden Age might be done but some of the stars who defined it are still with us today (and sadly, a few who have just recently departed). Many have passed away, and as each year passes, we lose more stars. But we can still celebrate and appreciate the ones we still have with us!
Marsha Hunt Is 102 Years Old!
Marsha Hunt was born in Chicago, the daughter of a lawyer in that city. She has always acknowledged her upbringing as being immensely helpful to her pursuing her career in acting. She starred in many films, including Pride and Prejudice, Raw Deal, and Born To The West.
Hunt was blacklisted by studio executives in the 1950s due to the rise of McCarthyism and the House Un-American Activities Committee, but her career picked back up after the senator from Wisconsin was discredited. She appeared in many smaller roles, many of them on television, and in 1988 even appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
