Nancy Olson Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

She cast such a sunny, positive glow in 1950s and 1960s films that you wonder how her promising career might have turned out had it not taken a sudden family detour. Lovely Milwaukee-born Nancy (Ann) Olson was the daughter of Henry, a physician, and Evelyn Olson, and educated at the University of Wisconsin. Discovered on stage after transferring to...

5After the death of co-writer D.M. Marshman Jr. in 2015, Olsen became the last surviving member of the creative team of Sunset Blvd. (1950).
6Honored for fundraising efforts on behalf of The Center Theatre Group (LA). [November 1996]
7Was up for the role of Delilah in Cecil B. DeMille's lavish 1949 costumer Samson and Delilah (1949), for which she candidly admitted she was not suited. Hedy Lamarr got the role.
8Although Olson hated the script to Big Jim McLain (1952), an anti-communist movie, she figured that six weeks in Hawaii and a chance to work with an iconic star like John Wayne seemed a good enough reason to accept. Besides, she thought the film would flop and nobody would see it. She didn't count on the constant TV exposure the film has had and says people stop her all the time to say they've seen her in it. Olson is a staunch liberal Democrat and she said she and Wayne would often have political arguments but she would always let Wayne have the last word. She also said he loved women and was a flirt but never crossed the line and was always the perfect gentleman.
9Her then-husband Alan Jay Lerner's 1956 musical play, "My Fair Lady" was dedicated "For Nancy, With Love".
10Sister-in-law of Jay Livingston.
11She was added to the Wall of Inspiration at her old high school, Wauwatosa East High School.
12Two daughters (Liza and Jennifer) by first husband Alan Jay Lerner, son by second husband Alan Livingston (former Chairman of the Board, Capitol Records).
