From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Susan Cabot (born July 9, 1927; died December 10, 1986) was an American actress.

Born Harriet Shapiro to a Jewish family in Boston, Massachusetts, Cabot's early life was one of turmoil, and she was raised in eight different foster homes. She completed her education in New York, New York, and found employment as an illustrator. She suplemented her income by working as a singer, and also worked in theater.

She made her film debut in 1947, by chance when Kiss of Death was filmed in New York, and she played a bit part. She expanded her acting work into television and was seen by a Hollywood talent scout who took her to Hollywood to work for Columbia Pictures. This brief period was not successful, and she moved to Universal Studios where she was signed to an exclusive contract. After a series of roles which Cabot played mainly in "B" western films, she grew frustrated at her lack of career progression and asked to be released from her contract. She moved back to New York, where she resumed her stage career with a role in A Stone for Danny Fisher. She was invited to return to Hollywood and appeared in a few more films including The Wasp Woman in 1960, her final film role.

Her personal life included a well publicised relationship with King Hussein of Jordan in 1959, and two marriages which both ended in divorce.

Cabot's son, who suffered from psychological problems, bludgeoned her to death in her home in Encino, California. He was subsequently charged with involuntary manslaughter.
