Celeste Holm, 1917-2012

Celeste Holm in Gentleman's Agreement (1947)

Actress Celeste Holm, who won a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for playing one of Gregory Peck's journalist colleagues in Gentleman's Agreement, died this morning at the age of 95. This was the first of three Oscar nominations for her, with the other two coming in Come to the Stable, a story about nuns trying to build a church in rural Maine; and All About Eve, where it seems half the cast got a nomination. The CNN obituary has a wonderful still from All About Eve.

Holm also had a lengthy career on Broadway.
