and Lynn Redgrave, who were making their Broadway debuts.[25] The same year, she appeared opposite Fred MacMurray
Fred MacMurray
in the Walt Disney-produced musical The Happiest Millionaire.[1] Bosley Crowther of The New York Times
The New York Times
was critical of the film, noting: " Geraldine Page
Geraldine Page
and Gladys Cooper...square off in one musical scene of socially up-staging each other that is drenched in perfumed vulgarity. But, then, the whole picture is vulgar. It is an over-decorated, over-fluffed, over-sentimentalized endeavor to pretend the lace-curtain millionaires are—or were—every bit as folksy as the old prize-fighters and the Irish brawlers in the saloon."[26] Mid-career work[edit] In 1969, Page starred opposite Ruth Gordon
Ruth Gordon
in the exploitation thriller What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice?, the third and final film in the Robert Aldrich-produced trilogy which followed What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) and Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964). The film is based on the novel The Forbidden Garden by Ursula Curtiss and features Page as Claire Marrable, a recently widowed socialite, who, upon discovering that her husband has left her virtually nothing, hires a number of unsuspecting housekeepers whom she murders one by one and robs them of their life savings in order to keep up her extravagant lifestyle.[27] Writing for The New York Times, Vincent Canby
Vincent Canby
deemed the film "an amusingly baroque horror story told by a master misogynist," and praised Page's "affecting" performance.[28] Page subsequently appeared in the Don Siegel-directed thriller The Beguiled (1971) opposite Clint Eastwood, playing the headmistress of a Southern girls' boarding school who takes in a wounded Confederate soldier.[29] Director Siegel called Page "certainly as fine an actor as I've ever worked with. I never have gotten along better with anyone than I did with her."[30] This was followed by a supporting role in the comedy Pete 'n' Tillie
Pete 'n' Tillie
(1972), for which she earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.[31] She also appeared in three episodes of Rod Serling's Night Gallery

Academy Award
for Best Actress,[40] and won a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.[41] The New York Times's Vincent Canby
Vincent Canby
lauded her performance in the film, writing: "Miss Page, looking a bit like a youthful Louise Nevelson
Louise Nevelson
with mink-lashed eyes, is marvelous — erratically kind, impossibly demanding, pathetic in her loneliness and desperate in her anger."[42] The following year, in November 1979, Page was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.[43] Later work and final performances[edit]

Page starred as Zelda Fitzgerald

in the last major Broadway production of a Williams play, Clothes for a Summer Hotel
Clothes for a Summer Hotel
in 1980,[19] followed by a supporting role in Harry's War (1981). Page starred as the secretive nun Mother Miriam Ruth in the Broadway production of Agnes of God, which opened in 1982 and ran for 599 performances with Page performing in nearly all of them; for her role, she received a nomination for the Tony Award

Sabra Jones
Strasberg to her dressing room to talk to Sabra about how much she had liked her performance in St. Joan by Maxwell Anderson, in which Geraldine had just seen her play the part originated by Ingrid Bergman. During this conversation Sabra asked her advice in forming a classic theatre based on alternating repertory. This became the Mirror Theater Ltd with its repertory program the Mirror Repertory, and Page accepted the role of Founding Artist in Residence.[44] Page remained continually active in theater, appearing in numerous repertory, Broadway, and Off-Broadway productions throughout the 1980s; this included roles in Inheritors (1983) by Susan Glaspell,[45] Paradise Lost (1983) by Clifford Odets,[46] Rain (1984) by John Colton (based on the short story "Miss Thompson" by W. Somerset Maugham),[47] Vivat! Vivat Regina! by Robert Bolt (in which she played Elizabeth I),[48] Clarence (1985) by Booth Tarkington,[49] and The Madwoman of Chaillot

(1985; in which she played the Madwoman to great acclaim).[50] Page earned her seventh Academy Award
Academy Award
nomination for her performance in the dark comedy The Pope of Greenwich Village
The Pope of Greenwich Village
(1984).[51] This marked a record at the time for most Academy Award
Academy Award
nominations without a win,[52] for which Page was tied with Peter O'Toole
Peter O'Toole
and Richard Burton (who themselves had also garnered seven nominations without winning).[53] On television, Page had a supporting role in the miniseries The Dollmaker (1984), opposite Jane Fonda
Jane Fonda
and Amanda Plummer.[54] In 1985, she apepared in the British horror film The Bride opposite Sting and Jennifer Beals; the drama White Nights, directed by Taylor Hackford; and opposite Rebecca de Mornay
Rebecca de Mornay
in the drama The Trip to Bountiful, in which she played an aging Southern Texas woman seeking to return to her hometown. The role earned Page wide critical acclaim, with the Los Angeles

Times referring to it as "the performance of a lifetime."[23] In 1986, she appeared on Broadway in The Circle by W. Somerset Maugham; during this production, Page won the Academy Award
Academy Award
for Best Actress for her performance in The Trip to Bountiful.[3] During her award speech, she thanked The Mirror Theater Ltd
The Mirror Theater Ltd
on worldwide television. At the Academy Awards, Geraldine wore her costume from The Circle, which had been designed and made by Gail Cooper-Hecht, the Mirror Theater's costume designer.[55] She received the award from F. Murray Abraham, who, after winning his Oscar for Amadeus, also joined the Mirror Repertory Company to play the rag-picker in the Madwoman of Chaillot.[56] Prior to winning the Academy Award, Page said to People magazine: "If I lose the Oscar this year, I’ll have the record for the most nominations without ever winning... I’d love to be champion, [but the loser] doesn’t have to get up there and make a fool of herself."[57] After winning the Academy Award, Page returned to finish her run performing in The Circle for Mirror Theater, and appeared opposite Carroll Baker, Oprah Winfrey, and Elizabeth McGovern
Elizabeth McGovern
in Native Son (1986).[36] This was followed by a lead role opposite Mary Stuart Masterson in My Little Girl
My Little Girl
(1987).[36] In the fall of 1986, Page asked permission to return to Broadway in a revival of Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit in the role of Madame Arcati. She was cast in the role, though the production would be Page's last. She was again nominated for the Tony Award
Tony Award
for Best Actress in a Play, though she did not win. A week after the Tony Awards ceremony, Page failed to appear for two performances of the play, and was found dead in her Manhattan home.[58] The show lasted several weeks more, with Page's understudy Patricia Conolly taking over her role.[3] Acting style[edit]

If [other actors] have trained the way you've been trained there is at least the hope of communication. But wonderful actors are wonderful to act with–it doesn't matter how they've been trained.

Page on acting, 1964[59]

Page was trained as a method actor,[6] and at times worked with psychoanalysts when developing her interpretations of roles.[60] She once told the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Times: "If I read a part and think I can connect to it, that I can touch people with it, I will do it, no matter what its size. And if I think I can't do something with a part, I won't take it."[58] In a 1964 interview upon completing the Broadway run of The Three Sisters, Page discussed her method acting at length.[61] When asked if she used emotional recall as a technique, she responded: "I would never shut it out. But I don't try to get one. My whole effort is to relax and keep the doors open so that there's room if one should pop up."[62] During her life, Page was regarded as a respected character actress.[52] Speaking of her stage career in 1986, she said: "I used to think that by opening [night] all the work was done. Now I'm finding how much you can learn from the audience."[52] She described acting as a "bottomless cup," adding: "If I studied for the next ninety years I'd just be scratching the surface."[63] Personal life[edit] Page was married to violinist Alexander Schneider
Alexander Schneider
from 1954 to 1957.[64] On September 8, 1963, she married actor Rip Torn, who was six years her junior, in Pinal, Arizona.[65] Page bore him three children: a daughter, actress Angelica Page, and twin sons, Anthony "Tony" and Jonathan "Jon" Torn,[57] the latter of whom is a professor of communications at Northern Arizona University.[66] Beginning in the early 1980s, Page and Torn lived separately[67] after he began dating actress Amy Wright;[68] Torn had first met Wright in 1976 and begun an affair shortly after.[69] Page was aware of Torn and Wright's relationship, and appeared onstage opposite Wright in the 1977 Off-Broadway production of The Stronger, under Torn's direction.[69] In 1983, Torn fathered a child with Wright.[69] Upon the birth of the child, Page was questioned about her marriage by columnist Cindy Adams, to which she responded: "Of course Rip and I are still married. We've been married for years. We're staying married. What's the big fuss?"[64] In spite of their separation, Page and Torn remained married until her death; her daughter described their relationship as still "close" up until Page died in 1987.[67] Page considered herself a gourmand, once joking: "Greedy gut is my middle name...Rip is wonderful. He does the cooking and I do the eating. I love everything but eggplant."[57] Death[edit]

Page's townhouse in Chelsea, Manhattan, where she died in 1987

On June 13, 1987, Page failed to arrive at the Neil Simon Theatre
Neil Simon Theatre
for both the afternoon and evening performances of Sir Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit, which had begun its run in March.[19] At the end of the show's evening performance, the play's producer announced that Page had been found dead in her lower Manhattan townhouse.[3][58] She was determined to have died of a heart attack.[3] Five days after her death, "an overflow crowd of colleagues, friends and fans", including Sissy Spacek, James Earl Jones, Amanda Plummer, Jerry Stiller, Anne Meara, and husband Torn filled the Neil Simon Theatre to pay tribute.[70] Her achievements as a stage actress and teacher were highlighted; actress Anne Jackson
Anne Jackson
stated at the tribute that "[Page] used a stage like no one else I'd ever seen. It was like playing tennis with someone who had 26 arms."[70] Rip Torn
Rip Torn
called her "Mi corazon, mi alma, mi esposa" ("My heart, my soul, my wife") and said they had "never stopped being lovers, and ... never will."[70] Page was cremated. Filmography and credits[edit] Main article: Geraldine Page

A monologue play chronicling Page's life, it was also written by her daughter:[75] "I grew up in the center of her sparkling career," Angelica recalled. "As her only daughter I feel compelled to share her lessons and gifts with others who did and did not have the opportunity to know her magic intimately. She was a true rebel and trail blazer. A masterful woman who was ahead of her time and should not be forgotten anytime soon."[75] The play premiered in Los Angeles
