Connie Gilchrist ACTOR


Connie Gilchrist was born on February 2nd, 1901 in Brooklyn, New York with the birth name Rose Constance Gilchrist.  Her mother, Martha Daniels was a stage actress and so early on in life, Gilchrist showed an interest in acting.
At the age of sixteen she began working as a stage actress in London.  After years of experience in London and France, she finally began working on Broadway in 1935.  However, it was not until the age of thirty nine that she first broke into the film industry appearing in, "Hullabaloo" (1940).  It was her contract with MGM that helped open her career as a film actress. 
Connie Gilchrist was most remembered for her role on the television series, "The Real McCoys" (1957) playing Mrs. Jenson as well as her role as Norah Muldoon in the 1958 film, "Auntie Mame".  Other film roles she took on throughout her career as an actress were in, "A Woman's Face" (1941), "The Thin Man Goes Home" (1945), "Little Women" (1949), "Houdini" (1953), "Some Came Running" (1958) and her final film roles was in 1969 in, "Some Kind of Nut".  
Along with a total of seventy seven film roles, Gilchrist also made numerous television appearances in such series as, "Leave it to Beaver", "Perry Mason", "M Squad", "Wagon Train", "Dr. Kildare", "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" and "Twilight Zone".
Gilchrist married only once to Edwin O'Hanlon in 1922 and they had one daughter before the marriage came to an end.  She did not remarry again and on March 3rd, 1985 she passed away at the age of eighty four.
