Character actress Leora Dana was born on April 1, 1923. She got a late start in acting, at age 33, with Williamsburg: The Story of a Patriot (1957) as Annie Fry. Although this fine actress made only 19 films, many were plum roles. One of the films where Leora stood out was Some Came Running (1958), playing Agnes Hirsh, the social climbing wife of small town jeweler Arthur Kennedy who couldn't stand her husband's brother, played by Frank Sinatra . Leora's last film was in Nothing Lasts Forever (1984) which was released after she died on December 13, 1983. Read more...
