Can You Spot the Oscar-Winning Actress?

posted by Nell Minow

Marmie college photo.jpgMy mother just sent me this photo from her college years. One of her classmates became an Oscar, Golden Globe, and Emmy-winning actress. Can you spot her?
P.S. That’s my beautiful mom in the second row from the front, second from the right.

    I agree – your mother is very beautiful, and she looks to be from about the same generation as my mother, based on hair styles. Most of the women in this class picture look like movie stars. I’ll venture a guess however – is one of them Kim Hunter?

  • Nell Minow

    Thanks, Alicia, and good guess, but that’s not it!

  • Cyndi

    Is the famous actress Rita Moreno?

  • Susana Forrester

    I don’t know who it is but my guess it’s the center person in the front row? Right?

  • Wendy

    Katharine Hepburn???

  • Jason

    My guess is Helen Hayes

  • Jim

    Could it be Audrey Hepburn?

  • Nancy

    I’m thinking Katharine Hepburn too.

  • Veronica Tingzon

    Was it Lee Grant? It looks like it may be her in the 1st row last one on the right?

  • Brenda

    Is that Liza with a Z in the top right corner?

  • Alicia

    I’m re-evaluating – bottom row, left. Glenn Close?

  • Jason

    My other guess… could it be Marilyn Bergman?

  • Mary Keeley

    How about a hint? Where did your lovely mom go to college?

  • bird

    Could it be Patricia Neal? 3rd row second from left? Total guess…
    One more shot: Anne Bancroft, front row second from left? And your mom is just lovely!

  • Betty Trascritti

    My guess is Cloris Leachman, 2nd row, 2nd from left. Am I right???

  • bogator

    Is the second person from the left in the second row Cloris Leachman?

  • jestrfyl

    Guessing from the amount of space the woman takes – or is given – I am guessing the second row, middle woman. Thespians require a lot of room. But I cannot figure out who she is.

  • Nell Minow

    You got it, Betty and bogator! It’s Cloris Leachman second from the left in the second row. She left Northwestern shortly after this picture was taken and took her beauty title (Miss Illinois or something like that) and went to Hollywood. Most people remember her best as Phyllis on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and then her own spin-off, but she won an Oscar for “The Last Picture Show” and was very memorable in “Young Frankenstein” as well. She and my mom are still in touch. Thanks so much for all the great comments and guesses!
