Andrea Leeds

Birthday: August 14, 1914 (69 years) Died: May 21, 1984 (39 years Ago in Palm Springs)

HomeTown: Butte, Montana, United States

She only appeared in a few films during the span of four years (1936-1940), but the gentle, soulful-eyed Andrea Leeds touched hearts with those few, culminating in an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress as the sensitive, aspiring young actress who does not survive the school of hard knocks in the 1937 movie version of Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman’s serio-comic play Stage Door. Stage Door was adapted from Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman’ (1937). Butte, Montana was the location of Andrea’s birth on August 18, 1914. During her “wonder years,” she and her family did a lot of travelling since her father was a mining engineer who was born in the United Kingdom. Following graduation from UCLA with the intentions of being a screenwriter, she pursued acting instead and apprenticed in bit roles under her given name, Antoinette Lees. During this same time period, she made an appearance in a comedy short produced by Hal Roach with the comedian Charley Chase. After this, she went on to win larger roles in better movies. She gave equally affecting turns in the sentimental drama The Goldwyn Follies (1938), Swanee River (1939) (as Mrs. Stephen Foster), The Real Glory (1939), and Earthbound (1940), all of which were blessed with her trademark gentleness, grace, and humanity. She portrayed another actress hopeful in the fine film Letter of Introduction (1938). Personal tragedy struck, however, when her fiancé, Jack Dunn, then an ice skating partner of Sonja Henie, died suddenly of a rare disease in July of 1938, and her once strong interest in her career began to wane dramatically. More than a year later, Andrea married wealthy sportsman Robert Stewart Howard, heir to father Charles S. Howard’s racing stables, and gave up her profession completely to raise a family. Andrea and her husband finally made their home in the Palm Springs region with their two children, Robert Jr. and Leann, the latter of whom passed away from cancer in 1971. Andrea is a devoutly religious person. The ownership and breeding of horses would be a significant part of her life and hobbies. Following the passing of her husband in 1962, she opened and ran a small jewellery boutique in the Palm Springs region, where she designed a significant number of the items she sold. At the age of 70, Andrea passed away from cancer in 1984. Andrea Leeds was born on August 14, 1914 in Butte, United States. Andrea Leeds died on May 21, 1984 at the age of 69 years in Palm Springs.
