Ms Anderson appeared in a couple of uncredted roles prior to being given the plus co-star position of Maybelle Merriweather in Gone With The Wind, her first major film.

Ms Anderson ended her film career in the 50’s, although she returned to the small screen as a co-star on the Peyton Place television series, in 1964.

Mary Anderson passed away on April 6th, in California. She turned 96 only three days earlier.

We want to hear from you!!! Leave us your thoughts here!!!

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
