From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Fay Bainter (December 7, 1891 – April 16, 1968) was an American actress. Christened Fay Okell Bainter in Los Angeles, California, her film debut didn't occur until This Side of Heaven in 1934. But she hit Hollywood fast, and in 1938 she was nominated for both the Academy Award for Best Actress, for White Banners, and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, for Jezebel, which she won.

She, once again, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Children's Hour.

Because her husband, Reginald Venable, was a military officer, the couple are buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7021 Hollywood Blvd.
