Biography for Eva Marie Saint

Played one of most famous female leads in movie history, opposite Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront (1954). She certainly brought "real acting" in a time when melodrama still ran rampant in the industry. Who can forget her memorable argument scene with Brando when she says, "I didn't say I don't love you, I said I want you to get out." Eva Marie Saint is still going strong with her work. She takes the fact that she's part of film history in her stride.

Trivia

Has campaigned to ban the usage of cell phones by motorists.

Lives in Santa Monica, California.

Performed in a musical version of "Our Town" as Emily in a 1955 TV production opposite Paul Newman (his only singing role) as George and Frank Sinatra as the Stage Manager.

Although the part of Edie Doyle properly is a lead, producer Sam Spiegel listed Eva Marie Saint as a Supporting Actress in the hopes of getting her a nomination. The ploy worked, and she won the Oscar.

Won the part of Edie Doyle in On the Waterfront (1954) over Elizabeth Montgomery. Director Elia Kazan, in his autobiography "A Life," says that the choice of an actress to play the part was narrowed down to Elizabeth Montgomery and Saint. Although Montgomery was fine in her screen test, there was an air of finishing school about her. Kazan thought this genteel quality would not be becoming for Edie, who was raised on the waterfront in Hoboken, NJ. He gave the part to Saint, and she went on to win cinematic immortality, and a Best Supporting Actress Oscar, in the part.

In 1974, the Eva Marie Saint Theater was dedicated on the campus Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Saint is a 1946 graduate of BGSU.
