Biography[edit] Parker was born on June 26, 1922, in Cedarville, Ohio, the daughter of Lola (Isett) and Lester Day Parker.[2] She moved with her family to East Cleveland, Ohio, where she attended public schools and graduated from Shaw High School. "Ever since I can remember all I wanted to do is act," she said. "But I didn't just dream about it, I worked at it."[3] She appeared in a number of school plays. After graduation she went to Martha's Vineyard
Martha's Vineyard
to work on her acting. She got a job as a waitress and was offered a screen test by 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
but turned it down. Wanting to focus on films, she moved to California and started appearing at the Pasadena Playhouse. [3] Warner Bros[edit] She was in the audience one night at Pasadena Playhouse
Pasadena Playhouse
when spotted by a Warners Bros talent scout, Irving Kumin. He offered her a test and she accepted; the studio signed her to a long-term contract in June 1941.[4] She was cast that year in the film They Died with Their Boots On,[5] but her scenes were cut.[6] Her actual film debut was as Nurse Ryan in Soldiers in White in 1942. She was given some decent roles in B films, Busses Roar (1942) and The Mysterious Doctor (1943), and had a small role in an expensive production, Mission to Moscow
Mission to Moscow
(1943) as Emlen Davies. This impressed Warners enough so when Joan Leslie
Joan Leslie
was held up on Rhapsody in Blue, Parker replaced her in a strong role in a prestige production, Between Two Worlds (1944), playing the suicidal wife of Paul Henreid's character. She stayed in support roles for Crime by Night (1944) and The Last Ride (1944), then was given the starring role opposite Dennis Morgan in The Very Thought of You (1944), replacing Ida Lupino. She was considered enough of a "name" to be given a cameo in Hollywood Canteen (1944). Warners gave her the choice role of Mildred Rogers in a new version of Somerset Maugham's Of Human Bondage (1946); although director Edmund Goulding
Edmund Goulding
called Parker one of the five greatest actresses in America,[7] previews were not favourable and the film sat on the shelf for two years before being released to an underwhelming reception. However in 1953, she called it her favourite role.[8] Parker later said the "big break" of her career was when she was cast opposite John Garfield in Pride of the Marines
Pride of the Marines
(1945). "It was a great part and who wouldn't look good with John Garfield," she later said. "He was absolutely wonderful."[9] However two films that followed with Errol Flynn, the romantic comedy Never Say Goodbye (1946) and the drama Escape Me Never (1947), were box office disappointments. Parker was suspended twice by Warners for refusing parts in films – in Stallion Road, where she was replaced by Alexis Smith
Alexis Smith
and Love and Learn.[10] She made the comedy Voice of the Turtle (1947, aired today under the title "One for the Book") with Ronald Reagan
Ronald Reagan
and was in an adaptation of The Woman in White (1948). She refused to appear in Somewhere in the City (1948) so Warners suspended her again; Virginia Mayo
Virginia Mayo
played the role.[11] Parker then had two years off, during which time she married and had a baby. She turned down a role in The Hasty Heart
The Hasty Heart
(1949) which she wanted to do, but it would have meant going to England and she did not want to leave her baby alone during its first year. "I probably received my salary for only six months during 1947 and 1948 but I can't regret that," she said. "All my life I wanted a child and anything that might happen to me professionally on that account would hardly seem a loss."[12] She returned in Chain Lightning with Humphrey Bogart. "I've had my fling at roles that have little or no relation to most people's lives," she said in a 1949 interview. "I want to keep away from such assignments as I can from now on even though, as some may say, they mean exercising your skill and talent in acting."[12] Parker broke the champagne bottle on the nose of the California Zephyr train, to mark its inaugural journey from San Francisco
San Francisco
on March 19, 1949.[13] Parker heard about a women in prison film Warners were making, Caged (1950), and actively lobbied the role. She got it, and won the 1950 Volpi Cup for Best Actress
Volpi Cup for Best Actress
at the Venice Film Festival
Venice Film Festival
and was nominated for an Academy Award. She also had a good role in the melodrama Three Secrets (1950). In February 1950, Parker left Warner Bros. after having been under contract there for eight years. Parker had understood that she would star in a film called Safe Harbor, but Warner Bros. apparently had no intention of making it. Because of this misunderstanding, her agents negotiated her release.[14] Paramount[edit] Parker's career outside of Warners started badly with Valentino (1951) playing a fictionalised wife of Rudolph Valentino
Rudolph Valentino
for producer Edward Small. She tried a comedy at 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
with Fred MacMurray, A Millionaire for Christy (1951) (originally called The Golden Goose). In 1951, Parker signed a contract with Paramount for one film a year, with an option for outside films.[15] This arrangement began brilliantly with Detective Story (1951) for director William Wyler, playing Mary McLeod, the woman who doesn't understand the position of her unstable detective husband (played by Kirk Douglas); Parker was nominated for the Oscar in 1951 for her performance. MGM[edit] Parker followed Detective Story with her portrayal of an actress in love with a swashbuckling nobleman (played by Stewart Granger) in Scaramouche (1952), a role originally intended for Ava Gardner. Parker later claimed that Granger was the only person she didn't get along with during her entire career.[9] However they had good chemistry and the film was a massive hit; MGM rushed her into Above and Beyond (1952), a biopic of Lt. Col. Paul W. Tibbets, Jr. (Robert Taylor), the pilot of the aircraft that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. It was a solid hit. While Parker was making a third film for MGM, Escape from Fort Bravo (1953), she signed a five-year contract to the studio.[16] She was named as star of a Sidney Sheldon script, My Most Intimate Friend[17] and of One More Time, from a script by Ruth Gordon
Ruth Gordon
and Garson Kanin
Garson Kanin
directed by George Cukor, but neither film was made. Back at Paramount, Parker starred with Charlton Heston
Charlton Heston
as a 1900s mail-order bride in The Naked Jungle
The Naked Jungle
(1954), directed by Byron Haskin and produced by George Pal. Parker returned to MGM where she was reunited with Robert Taylor in an Egyptian adventure film, Valley of the Kings (1954), and a Western, Many Rivers to Cross (1955). "I maintain that if you work, believe in yourself and do what is right for you without stepping all over others, the way somehow opens up," she said in 1953. "By that, I don't mean just sitting back. At Warners, they still have a mile-long list of my suspensions for refusing certain parts. Anyway I never did a Western. Not once. It's paid off too."[8] In a 1954 interview, she said her favorite films were Caged
and Detective Story and her least favorite were Chain Lightning, Escape Me Never, Valentino and Woman in White. She had commitments to make two films a year at MGM and one a year at Paramount. "Personally I prefer to be under contract," she said.[18] MGM gave her one of her best roles as opera singer Marjorie Lawrence in Interrupted Melody
Interrupted Melody
(1955). This was a big hit and earned Parker a third Oscar nomination; she later said it was her favorite film.[9] Also in 1955, Parker appeared in the film adaptation of the National Book Award-winner The Man with the Golden Arm
The Man with the Golden Arm
(1955), directed by Otto Preminger and released through United Artists. She played Zosh, the supposedly wheelchair-bound wife of heroin-addicted, would-be jazz drummer Frankie Machine (Frank Sinatra). It was a major commercial and critical success. In 1956, she was billed above the title with Clark Gable
Clark Gable
for the Raoul Walsh-directed Western comedy The King and Four Queens, also for United Artists. It was then back at MGM for two movies, both dramas: Lizzie (1957), in the title role, as a woman with a split personality; The Seventh Sin (1957), a remake of The Painted Veil in the role originated by Greta Garbo and, once again, intended for Ava Gardner. Both films flopped at the box office and, as a result, Parker's plans to produce her own film, L'Eternelle, about French resistance fighters, did not materialize.[19] Later films[edit] Parker supported Frank Sinatra
Frank Sinatra
in a popular comedy, A Hole in the Head (1959). She returned to MGM for Home from the Hill (1960), co-starring with Robert Mitchum, then took over Lana Turner's role of Constance Rossi in Return to Peyton Place, a 1961 sequel to the hit 1957 film. That was made by 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
who also produced Madison Avenue (1961) with Parker. In 1960, she made her TV debut. "I look for the quality story and for parts that I think will be good or fun. People told me I was crazy to do Hole in the Head and Home from the Hill but both those pictures appealed to me. I did enough of the bad ones (films) while I was under contract - because I was being told to do them. That's the problem with being under contract. You do the pictures or be suspended. Now I don't want to work unless I have faith in the part. This has nothing to do with wanting to be famous or anything like that. It's just that I love acting."[20] In the early 1960s, she worked increasingly in television, with the occasional film role such as Panic Button (1964). Parker's best-known screen role was playing Baroness Elsa Schraeder in the 1965 Oscar-winning musical The Sound of Music. The Baroness was famously and poignantly unsuccessful in keeping the affections of Captain Georg von Trapp
Georg von Trapp
(played by Christopher Plummer) after he falls in love with Maria (played by Julie Andrews). In 1966, she played an alcoholic widow in the crime drama Warning Shot, a talent scout who discovers a Hollywood star in The Oscar, and a rich alcoholic in An American Dream. From the late 1960s, television would occupy more of her energies.
