Nina Foch (in 1945 film noir "Escape in the Fog")


Dutch-born American actress who was nominated for the Oscar in 1954 as Best Supporting Actress in Executive Suite. Four years later Foch was the assistant director in the film classic Diary of Anne Frank. In 1960, she appeared in Spartacus and then chose to retire for eight years before returning to selective roles.

As a very young child, she was the subject of a bitter international custody battle between her parents, settling with her mother in New York at the age of eight. "Once it was decided," she said, "They both lost interest in me." Sent by her mother to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, she found a home in acting. In 1943, with a contract from Columbia Pictures, she came to Hollywood. Foch survived such early horrors as The Return of the Vampire and Cry of the Werewolf. From 1947, she arranged her studio contract so that she could appear on Broadway, and she continued to work frequently with John Houseman.

By the age of 38, she had been married three times and had one child. Further film credits include A Song To Remember, An American in Paris and The Ten Commandments. By the mid-eighties, she had been a private acting coach in Hollywood for 15 years. She died of myelodysplasia in Los Angeles on 5 December 2008 at age 84.
