Eve Arden

Born: 30 April 1908, Mill Valley, California, USA
Died: 12 November 1990, Los Angeles, California, USA

Eve Arden first appeared on stage at 16 in a touring stock company. Eve appeared on Broadway for the first time in 1934 in the Ziegfeld Follies. Although movie stardom initially eluded her, she was happily carving out a career in supporting roles as a fast-talking, wise-cracking lady in comedies. She found success on television in 1952 in the title role of the series 'Our Miss Brooks' which ran for 130 episodes and was again wonderful in 'The Mothers-In-Law' series of 1967. Comedy was Eve Arden's greatest success for nearly 60 years. In 1983, after more than 40 years away, Eve Arden returned to Broadway for the play 'Moose Murders' although she soon left the production while it was still in its preview stage.
