Donna Reed is TCM Star of the Month on
Turner Classic Movies

 

"Uncut and Commercial Free" - Turner Classic Movies will recognize Donna Reed as their TCM Star of the Month for May:

"The strikingly beautiful Donna Reed, TCM Star of the Month for May, specialized in playing warm-hearted sweethearts, wives and mothers but proved, when the occasion allowed, to be capble of much more. Iowa-born Reed (1921-1986) was signed by MGM in 1941 and, like many another starlet at the studio, had early exposure in the Andy Hardy series. Her appearance opposite Mickey Rooney in The Courtship of Andy Hardy (1942) lead him to call her "the best young actress" who ever played in the series. Also at MGM, Reed played sister to Lana Turner in Green Dolphin Street (1947) and to Elizabeth Taylor in The Last Time I Saw Paris (1954). But her greatest moment came as the bitter prostitute Alma in Columbia's From Here to Eternity (1953), which brought her an Oscar® as Best Supporting Actress. Later she turned to television, having a particular success with her sitcom The Donna Reed Show (1958-1966)."
