Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Linda Darnell
    FORTIES
  • 1965
    Age 41
    Darnell died on April 10, 1965, from burns she received in a house fire in Glenview, Illinois early the day before.
    More Details Hide Details She had been staying at the home of her former secretary and former agent. Her 1940 film, Star Dust, had played on television the night before the fire; both women watched it and retired at midnight. They were awakened at about 5 am by the couple's 16-year-old daughter saying she smelled smoke and thought there was a fire in the house. The three women were trapped on the second floor of the home by heat and smoke, as the fire had started in the living room. The women urged the young girl to jump from the second-floor window. After her daughter had jumped, Darnell's secretary stood on the window ledge, calling for help. She had lost track of Darnell and insisted the firefighters rescue her before she was taken from the window ledge. Darnell was found next to the burning living room sofa; she was transferred to the burn unit at Chicago's Cook County Hospital with burns to 80% of her body.
  • 1964
    Age 40
    She was promised a monthly alimony of $350 until July 15, 1964, and $250 until September 15, 1967.
    More Details Hide Details
  • THIRTIES
  • 1963
    Age 39
    In 1963, Darnell was granted a divorce from Robertson following an outburst in the courtroom, where she accused her third husband of fathering the baby of a Polish actress.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1957
    Age 33
    In 1957, she started drinking heavily, and in November 1958, Darnell sank into a depression, but went into rehab, recovering for a while.
    More Details Hide Details
    Darnell was married to pilot Merle Roy Robertson from 1957 to 1963.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1955
    Age 31
    In response, Darnell resorted to charity work, opening facilities accommodating 30 girls in the neighborhood of Rome in 1955.
    More Details Hide Details Liebmann attempted to save the marriage by adopting a baby named Alfreda, but the marriage ended nevertheless on grounds of incompatibility, and Liebmann kept the girl.
  • 1954
    Age 30
    In her later life, she dated actor Dick Paxton and had an affair with Italian director Giuseppe Amato. She married brewery heir Philip Liebmann in February 1954.
    More Details Hide Details Due to a lack of physical attraction from her side, Darnell agreed that the marriage would be a business arrangement: she was to be his wife in name only, and in return, he supported her financially. After a while, she grew dissatisfied with her loveless marriage, and she detested her husband for allowing her to lash out at him, as well as cheapening her by buying her lavish presents.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1951
    Age 27
    When she filed for divorce from Marley in 1951, she accused her husband of cruelty, claiming he was "rude" and "critical" towards Darnell and her family.
    More Details Hide Details Following a five-minute hearing, Darnell was granted a divorce and custody of Charlotte, while Marley was to pay $75 a month for child support.
  • 1950
    Age 26
    On July 19, 1950, Darnell reportedly had separated from her husband.
    More Details Hide Details Marley offered a quiet settlement—without mention of Mankiewicz—for a payment of $125,000. She agreed, and she almost lost all of her money.
  • 1949
    Age 25
    On January 25, 1949, Darnell went to court to sue her former business manager Cy Tanner for fraud.
    More Details Hide Details She testified that he stole $7,250 from her between 1946 and 1947, and Tanner was eventually sent to prison.
    When he left in late 1949 for on-location shooting of All About Eve (1950), Darnell fell into a depression and almost committed suicide.
    More Details Hide Details She continued to occasionally meet with him until production of The Barefoot Contessa (1954) started.
    In 1949, Darnell went into psychotherapy for hostile emotions that she had been building since childhood.
    More Details Hide Details Darnell's romance with Mankiewicz influenced her personal life.
  • 1948
    Age 24
    In mid-1948, she became romantically involved with Joseph L. Mankiewicz, the director of A Letter to Three Wives, and in July 1948, she filed for divorce.
    More Details Hide Details Mankiewicz, however, was unwilling to leave his wife for Darnell, and though the affair continued for six years, she returned to her husband. Whereas she called him the "great love of her life," Mankiewicz never acknowledged the affair; he only mentioned her to his biographer as a "marvelous girl with very terrifying personal problems."
    Because Darnell and Marley were unable to have children, they adopted a daughter in 1948, Charlotte Mildred "Lola" Marley (born January 5, 1948), the actress's only child.
    More Details Hide Details She also planned to adopt a boy within a few years, but nothing ever came of it.
  • 1946
    Age 22
    In 1946, during production of Centennial Summer, she repeatedly met with Howard Hughes.
    More Details Hide Details Although she initially disregarded gossip of an affair, she fell in love with the womanizing millionaire and separated from Marley shortly after finishing My Darling Clementine. When Hughes announced that he had no desire to marry her, Darnell returned to her husband and cancelled divorce proceedings. Shortly after the reunion, her health worsened, caused by the tough production of Forever Amber (1947).
    Darnell replaced British actress Peggy Cummins in July 1946 at a cost of $350,000.
    More Details Hide Details Because $1 million had already been spent on production costs when Darnell was brought in, the pressure was high to make the film a financial success. Her casting was a result of a campaign for stronger roles. Regardless, she was surprised to find out that she had been cast, because she had been intensively rehearsing for Captain from Castile by the time. Although she had to give up that role and work with Otto Preminger, she was delighted to play the title role and thought she was "the luckiest girl in Hollywood." The search for the actress to portray Amber, a beauty who uses men to make her fortune in 17th-century England, was modeled on the extensive process that led to the casting of Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara. Production demanded a lot from Darnell. She was again put on a diet and was assigned to a voice coach to learn how to speak with an English accent. In addition, she spent hours in fittings for costume changes. Darnell was certain that Forever Amber would be her ticket to stardom, and she told reporters:
    In 1946, Darnell won the starring role in the highly anticipated movie Forever Amber, based on a bestselling historical novel that was denounced as being immoral at that time.
    More Details Hide Details The character, Amber, was so named because of her hair color, and this is the only major film in which Darnell—normally known for her raven hair and somewhat Latin looks—appears as a redhead. It was the most expensive film yet produced by Fox, and publicity at the time compared the novel to Gone with the Wind.
    In 1946, Darnell filmed two pictures simultaneously, the expensively budgeted Anna and the King of Siam and Preminger's Centennial Summer.
    More Details Hide Details During the release of the latter, she was on location in Monument Valley for the filming of the classic Western My Darling Clementine (1946), playing a role for which she lost 12 pounds. She was assigned to a negligible role by Zanuck, which displeased the film's director, John Ford, who felt that she was not suitable.
  • 1945
    Age 21
    Due to her success in Fallen Angel, she was cast opposite Tyrone Power in Captain from Castile in December 1945, on the insistence of Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
    More Details Hide Details Although she looked forward to the film project, believing it would be her most important to date, she was later replaced by newcomer Jean Peters due to scheduling conflicts, a decision she resented.
    In January 1945, she was added to the cast of the film noir Fallen Angel (1945), which also included Dana Andrews and Alice Faye.
    More Details Hide Details Despite suffering from the "terrifying" director Otto Preminger, Darnell completed the film and was praised by reviewers so widely that there was even talk of an Oscar nomination.
  • 1944
    Age 20
    Released in 1944, the film provided her a new screen image as a pin-up girl.
    More Details Hide Details Shortly after, Darnell was again loaned out to portray a showgirl in The Great John L., the first film to feature her bare legs. Darnell complained that the studio lacked recognition of her, which prodded Zanuck to cast her in Hangover Square (1945), playing a role she personally had chosen. The film became a great success, and with Darnell's triumph assured, she was allowed to abandon her upcoming film Don Juan Quilligan (1945), which would have been another low point in her career.
    Matters changed when she was named one of the four most beautiful women in Hollywood, along with Hedy Lamarr, Ingrid Bergman, and Gene Tierney in a 1944 edition of Look.
    More Details Hide Details Afterwards, the studio allowed her to be loaned out for the lead in Summer Storm. Portraying a "seductive peasant girl who takes three men to their ruin before she herself is murdered," it was a type of role she had never before played. In a later interview, Darnell commented:
  • TEENAGE
  • 1943
    Age 19
    By late 1943, Darnell was fed up with critics only praising her beauty rather than her acting abilities.
    More Details Hide Details Judging her performance in Sweet and Low-Down (1944), in which she co-starred with Lynn Bari, one critic of the Los Angeles Examiner wrote, "Lynn comes off the best because she has more of a chance to shine. Linda just doesn't have enough to do—but looks beautiful doing it." Darnell was reduced to second leads and was overlooked for big-budget productions.
    In 1943, she was cast, uncredited, as the Virgin Mary in The Song of Bernadette.
    More Details Hide Details
    In April 1943, she was put on suspension, which meant being replaced in the Technicolor musical film The Gang's All Here (1943).
    More Details Hide Details By this time, Darnell had eloped, which caused Zanuck to be in even greater fury.
  • 1942
    Age 18
    Up to 1942, she dated Kay Kyser, Eddie Albert, George Montgomery, and Jackie Cooper, among others.
    More Details Hide Details
    Starting at age 17, Darnell dated her publicity agent Alan Gordon, whom she allegedly married in a double wedding with Lana Turner and Joseph Stephen Crane on July 17, 1942.
    More Details Hide Details The report turned out to be false, and over the years, Darnell became known as "filmland's most eligible bachelorette."
    In early 1942, Darnell filmed The Loves of Edgar Allan Poe, another film that would not do much to improve her career.
    More Details Hide Details Meanwhile, she realized that Darryl F. Zanuck had lost interest in her, and she was overlooked for most film roles that suited her. Instead, she was cast in roles that she loathed, including the musical Orchestra Wives (1942). Zanuck insisted that she take the role, but she was replaced by Ann Rutherford after 12 days of shooting. The press reported that "Linda Darnell and Twentieth Century-Fox aren't on the best of terms at the moment." As a punishment, she was loaned out to another studio for a supporting role in a B movie called City Without Men. According to co-star Rosemary DeCamp, Darnell nevertheless was "very polite", and she was satisfied to work at a studio which did not treat her as a child.
  • 1941
    Age 17
    Months passed by without any work, and in August 1941, she was cast in a supporting role in the musical Rise and Shine (1941).
    More Details Hide Details The film was a setback in her career, and she was rejected for a later role because she refused to respond to Darryl F. Zanuck's advances. Instead, she contributed to the war effort, working for the Red Cross, selling war bonds, and she was a regular at the Hollywood Canteen.
  • 1940
    Age 16
    In 1940, Pearl accused her husband of having an incestuous relationship with Evelyn, one of her children, though he was not Evelyn's biological father.
    More Details Hide Details Following an intense fight between her parents in 1942, Darnell left home with her younger sister Monte and never returned. In spite, Pearl turned to the press, which gained Darnell some bad publicity. In 1942, Darnell was plagued with extortion letters from an unknown person threatening her with bodily harm unless $2,000 were paid immediately. The studio asked the FBI to protect the actress, and eventually a 17-year-old high school student was arrested for the crime. On April 18, 1943, at age 19, Darnell eloped with 42-year-old cameraman Peverell Marley in Las Vegas. Darnell and Marley started seeing each other in 1940, and the press dismissed him as her "devoted friend and escort." Most friends and relatives disapproved of the marriage, including 20th Century Fox and her parents, and Darnell was believed to look at Marley more as a father figure than her romantic interest. Marley was a heavy drinker and introduced Darnell to alcohol in 1944, which eventually led to an addiction and weight problems. Neighbors and acquaintances recalled the drastic change she underwent in this period, becoming hardened and hot- tempered.
    The studio was unable to find Darnell suitable roles. In late 1940, Fox chose her for the main role in Song of the Islands (1942), a Hawaiian musical film which eventually starred Betty Grable.
    More Details Hide Details After Blood and Sand, she was set to co-star with Claudette Colbert in Remember the Day (1941), but another actress was eventually cast. Meanwhile, she was considered for the female lead in Swamp Water (1941), but Anne Baxter was later assigned the role. Darnell was disappointed and felt rejected; she later said: "Right under your very nose someone else is brought in for that prize part you wanted so terribly."
    In the summer of 1940, Darnell began working on The Mark of Zorro (1940), in which she again co-starred as Power's sweetheart in a role for which Anne Baxter was previously considered.
    More Details Hide Details A big-budget adventure film that was raved over by the critics, The Mark of Zorro was a box office sensation and did much to enhance Darnell's star status. Afterwards, she was paired with Henry Fonda for the first time in the western Chad Hanna (1940), her first Technicolor film. The film received only little attention, unlike Darnell's next film Blood and Sand (1941), which was shot on location in Mexico and in which she was reteamed with Power. It was the first film for which she was widely critically acclaimed. Nevertheless, Darnell later claimed that her downfall began after Blood and Sand. The change and realization were very subtle. I'd had the fame and money every girl dreams about—and the romance.
    By June 1940, shortly after completing Brigham Young, Darnell achieved stardom and earned "a weekly salary larger than most bank officials."
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1939
    Age 15
    Following the film's release, she was cast in the drama comedy Star Dust in December 1939.
    More Details Hide Details The film was hailed as one of the "most original entertainment idea in years" and boosted Darnell's popularity, being nicknamed 'Hollywood's loveliest and most exciting star'. Variety continued: "Miss Darnell displays a wealth of youthful charm and personality that confirms studio efforts to build her to a draw personality." Her studio contract had been revised to allow Darnell to earn $200 a week. At first, everything was like a fairy tale coming true. I stepped into a fabulous land where, overnight, I was a movie star. In pictures you're built up by everyone. On the set, in the publicity office, wherever you go, everyone says you're wonderful. It gives you a false sense of security. You waltz through a role, and everywhere you hear that you are beautiful and lovely, a natural-born actress. Darnell and Power were cast together for the second time due to the box office success of Day-Time Wife, and they became a highly publicized onscreen couple, which prompted Darryl F. Zanuck to add 18 more romantic scenes to Brigham Young. The film's director, Henry Hathaway, in later life had only slight memories of Darnell and recalled that "a sweeter girl never lived."
    In a 1939 interview, she expressed her interest in starring opposite Power in Johnny Apollo (1940).
    More Details Hide Details Rationalizing why she was not cast, Darnell said: "It's a man's part and the girl's role is only incidental." Dorothy Lamour was cast, instead. Nevertheless, Darnell had her way as she was assigned in the female lead opposite Power in the light romantic comedy Day-Time Wife (1939). Although the film received only slightly favorable reviews, Darnell's performance was received positively, with one critic saying: "Despite her apparent youth, Darnell turns in an outstanding performance when playing with popular players." Another critic wrote that "little Linda is not only a breath-taking eyeful, but a splendid actress, as well." Life magazine stated that Darnell appeared to be 22 and was "the most physically perfect girl in Hollywood".
    While working on Hotel for Women, Darnell was cast alongside Henry Fonda and Claudette Colbert in Drums Along the Mohawk (1939) in June 1939.
    More Details Hide Details She was later replaced, because the studio felt her role was not important enough. In an interview during production of Hotel for Women, which lasted until June, Darnell admitted that movie making was not what she expected: "I'm learning what really hard work is. At home in Dallas I used to sprawl on the lawn and dream about the nice, easy time the screen stars must be having in Hollywood, but the last two months have taught me quite another story." Since the beginning of her career at 20th Century Fox, Darnell had been very positive about her frequent co-star Tyrone Power.
    Her true age came out later in 1939, and she became one of the few actresses under the age of 16 to serve as leading ladies in films.
    More Details Hide Details
    With production beginning in April 1939, she was featured in her first film Hotel for Women (1939), which had newspapers immediately hailing her as the newest star of Hollywood.
    More Details Hide Details Loretta Young was originally assigned to play the role, but demanded a salary which the studio would not give her. Darryl F. Zanuck instead cast Darnell "because he felt that the name would advertise her beauty and suggest a Latin quality that matched her coloring." Although only 15 at the time, Darnell posed as a 17-year-old and was listed as 19 years old by the studio. According to columnist Louella O. Parsons, Darnell was "so young, so immature and so naive in her ideas" and was very loyal to her boss, Darryl F. Zanuck.
    Nevertheless, by age 15, she was signed to a contract at 20th Century Fox and moved to a small apartment in Hollywood all alone on April 5, 1939.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1938
    Age 14
    Arriving in California alongside Mary Healy and Dorris Bowdon in February 1938, Darnell was initially rejected by film studios and was sent home because she was declared "too young".
    More Details Hide Details Although originally wanting to become an actress on the stage, Darnell was featured in a "Gateway to Hollywood" talent-search and initially landed a contract at RKO Pictures. There was no certainty, though, and she soon returned to Dallas. When 20th Century Fox offered her a part, Darnell wanted to accept, but RKO was unwilling to release her.
  • 1936
    Age 12
    In 1936, she entered the Dallas Little Theater and was cast in the southwestern premiere of Murder in the Cathedral.
    More Details Hide Details The same year, she was hired as one of the hostesses at the Texas Centennial Exposition. In November 1937, a talent scout for 20th Century Fox arrived in Dallas, looking for new faces. Encouraged by her mother, Darnell met him, and after a few months, he invited her for a screen test in Hollywood.
