She was great in every film she ever made. I have been watching for her birthday every July, as a reminder of the golden age of film as well as that of the greatest generation that took on Nazism, Fascism and Imperial Japan. A naturalized citizen, she was a frequent participant in the Hollywood Canteen and toured with the USO to support our troops.

Her legacy will be the successful lawsuit she brought against the major Hollywood studios, which allowed actors to choose their own roles rather than the ones dictated by the studio bosses.
