biography

Statuesque actress Marie Windsor was born Emily Marie Bertelsen in Marysvale, Utah, on December 11, 1919. Early on, she harbored an interest in acting, taking lessons while still a youth. She went to college to study drama but left Brigham Young University in 1939 for California, to study with famed Russian actress and drama coach Maria Ouspenskaya. Windsor, at 5'9", was also a Varga model. She nailed a contract with MGM in the early 1940s, but the studio never gave her the build-up she deserved, for years casting her in small, sometimes uncredited, roles. She used her time to do considerable radio and stage work. She married bandleader Ted Steele in 1946, but the marriage quickly dissolved.

Marie Windsor

Glamorous 1950s shot of Marie Windsor

Her first important role came in the 1948 film noir thriller Force of Evil; Windsor's tough on-screen persona naturally lent itself to certain film genres, most notably film noir and westerns. From the late 1940s through the late 1950s, she starred in a succession of films, mostly film noir, westerns, and some sci-fi/horror, sometimes making as many as eight films a year for a variety of studios. Some of her best-known films include Cat-Women of the Moon (1953; with Sonny Tufts and Victor Jory), Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955; with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello), Swamp Women (1955; with Beverly Garland and Mike Connors), and The Killing (1956; with Sterling Hayden and Coleen Gray).

later years

Windsor remarried in 1954, this time to businessman Jack Hupp, and the couple welcomed a son in early 1963. In the late 1950s, Windsor slowed her career and concentrated instead on family life, limiting her acting mostly to TV guest appearances and the occasional film. Although she made fewer films in the 1960s and 1970s, Windsor was active in Hollywood as a member of the Board of Directors of the Screen Actors Guild. Later in life, her interest in art led her to begin painting, for which she had considerable talent. She continued to work throughout the 1980s but, afflicted with arthritis, she retired in the early 1990s. Sadly, Marie Windsor passed away on December 10, 2000, just one day shy of her 81st birthday. She was survived by her husband, son, and stepson.
