The details (from wikipedia)


Mari Aldon (November 17, 1925 – October 31, 2004; real name Aldona Pauliutė) was a Lithuanian American actress.

Aldon was born in Tauragė, Lithuania. When she was three years old, her parents moved to Toronto where she attended Givens Public School and Central High School. She studied ballet, drama, piano, and singing. Before she began working in films, she acted for 11 months in a road company of A Streetcar Named Desire and danced with the Canadian Ballet. She also appeared on radio with Alan Young and on The Great Gildersleeve.

After making her screen debut in a minor role in The Locket (1946) she gradually evolved to playing supporting or lead roles. Her most notable performance was starring opposite Gary Cooper in the 1951 Western Distant Drums. By the mid-1950s she was appearing either in B Pictures like the British thriller Mask of Dust (1954) or in supporting roles in more expensive films such as David Lean's Summertime (1955). After this point she worked largely in television.

She was the wife of film director Tay Garnett.
