Actresses of the 50s and 60s

Tuesday Weld plays golf

Tuesday Weld, the child-model-turned-sex-kitten-turned-great-actress, an Oscar nominee for Looking For Mr. Goodbar, has always had a tangled relationship with fame. In the 1960s, she turned down Bonnie and Clyde because, “Do you think I want a success?” (And also, more sensibly, she was nursing at the time.) She was insulted when asked to test for Rosemary’s Baby. She also passed on major roles in Cactus Flower and True Grit. And she’s said through the years that she likes being a cult who people always tried to rescue from awful films; she was comfortable in that legendary position because even if you don’t work, your cult still glows. The Village Voice.
