Learning About Sylvia Sidney

I have known about Sylvia Sidney for a while now, but I have not yet done any reading about her. Some things that I have learned recently have really surprised me. For example, she acted in movies until 1996 in "Mars Attacks", and in television until 1998. I had no idea that this beautiful woman in the 1930's played the grandmother in "Mars Attacks"! I haven't seen that movie for several years, but I remember the character. I plan on doing a lot of research on her, so prepare to read a post later down the road on Sylvia Sidney!


  1. If you want a really nice photo book on Sylvia Sidney,check out the gallery book on her available via blurb.com.It contains excellent photos and her movie,tv,and stage career highlights.

  2. I can't wait to see your posts on her! It seems like I only started seeing her in films this year (I watched Fury & Sabotage for the first time) and she was fantastic!

    Thanks! I'll have to check that out.

    Kate -

    I really haven't seen much on her either. I have several of her films on hold at the library though. I can't wait to see them!

  4. Wonderful. She is one of my favorite actresses.
