June 14 , 2012

      Seasoned actress Ann Rutherford is dead. She was born on the 2 of November, 1920 at Vancouver British Colombia, Canada to an actress mother former Lillian Mansfield and father –a metropolitan opera tenor John Rutherford. She started her acting carrier at an early age with low cost movies like ‘Ghost City’ (1932. Staring Bill Cody and Andy Shuford), ‘The Lonely Trail’ (1936.also staring John Wayne and CY Kendall), although when she left for Hollywood’s MGM studios at 1937 she was not a household name then. But  that same year though (1937) she landed a role in a sequel of the popular Hardy movies series ‘You are only young once’ as Polly Benedict, a role played by Margaret Marquis in the first of the series-“A family affair’, which made her a popular actress. She went on to feature in 11 more of the series (there are 16 series in all).

     She is best known for her role as the youngest of the O’Hara sisters in the classic movie ‘Gone with the Wind’, a role which she was said to have won because Judy garland was filming ‘the wizard of oz’. She has two stars in the Hollywood walk of fame-one for TV and the other for film.

     Ann Rutherford died at her Beverly Hills’ home at the age of 94 on Monday night. She was said to be suffering from declining health with heart problems.She will definitely be missed by all who appreciate her good works
