Audrey Mary Totter (December 20, 1917 – December 12, 2013) was an American actress and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer contract star.

Family

Audrey (some sources indicate "Audra") Mary Totter was born in 1917[1][2][3] and raised in Joliet, Illinois. Her parents were John (born Yugoslavia) and Ida Mae Totter. Her father was of Austro-Slovenian descent and her mother was Swedish American.

Career

She began her acting career in radio in the late 1930s, and, following success in Chicago and New York, was signed to a seven-year film contract with MGM. She made her film debut in Main Street After Dark (1945) and established herself as a popular female lead in the 1940s. Although she appeared in various film genres, she became most widely known to movie audiences in film noir productions.[citation needed]

Among her successes were:

By the early 1950s, the tough-talking "dames" she was best known for portraying were no longer fashionable, and as MGM began to work towards creating more family-themed films, Totter was released from her contract. She reportedly was dissatisfied with her MGM career and agreed to appear in Any Number Can Play only after Clark Gable intervened. She worked for Columbia Pictures and 20th Century Fox, for example, FBI Girl (1951), but the quality of her films dropped, and by the end of the 1950s, her career was in decline.[citation needed]
