Jacqueline White in Crossfire (1947)
November 27, 1922|
Beverly Hills, California, U.S.
|Spouse(s)||Bruce Anderson (1948-2000; his death); 5 children|
White's film debut resulted from her work in a drama class at UCLA. A casting director saw her in a production of Ah, Wilderness! and arranged for a screen test for her. That led to her first film appearance, in Song of Russia (1944).
White usually played either lead actresses in B-movies or supporting parts in A-movies. She usually played the main character, and one of her biggest movies was Mystery in Mexico. White was under contract to both Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, where she was cast mostly in uncredited small roles, then RKO appearing in two classics, Crossfire and The Narrow Margin.
White retired from film in 1950 upon her marriage to Bruce Anderson. She relocated to Wyoming with her husband, who started an oil business. When she returned to Los Angeles for the birth of her first child, she was spotted in the RKO commissary, visiting friends, by director Richard Fleischer and producer Stanley Rubin, who offered her a co-starring role in The Narrow Margin (1952).
Still active as of 2005, White appears occasionally at film conventions. In 2013, she made an appearance at the annual TCM Film Festival.
