Virginia Huston (April 24, 1925 - February 28, 1981) was a film actress.
Born Virginia Houston in Wisner, Nebraska, Huston appeared in many 1940s and 1950s film noir and adventure films. Signing with RKO in 1945, her first film was opposite George Raft in Nocturne. Her singing voice in the nightclub was redubbed by a singer. Huston was the ninth actress to play Jane, appearing in Tarzan's Peril (1951). Her other films include Out of the Past (released in the UK as Build My Gallows High) (1947), in which she plays Robert Mitchum's girlfriend; The Racket (1951); and Sudden Fear (1952). Huston suffered a broken back in an automobile accident, which disrupted her career at its peak - when she returned, she dropped to minor roles and "B"-level films.
Huston retired from films after her marriage to a wealthy real estate agent; she died of cancer in 1981.
