Oscar-winning actress Dorothy Malone died at the age of 93 on Friday, 11 days before her 94th birthday.
Malone won an Oscar for best supporting actress in at the 1956 Academy Awards for her portrayal of Marylee Hadley in “Written on the Wind” and was later cast in ABC’s primetime soap opera “Peyton Place.”
“At the time, doing television was considered professional death. However, I knew the series was going to be good, and I didn’t have to prove myself as a star,” Malone said in 1981, the Los Angeles Times reported.
