Edwina Booth

Edwina Booth was an actress in the 1930's.  Her real name was Constance Woodruff, great grand daughter of President Wilford Woodruff.   She was a virtual unknown when MGM chose her for the female lead in the early talkie adventure film "Trader Horn" (1931). While shooting that film on location in Africa, Booth suffered heatstroke and numerous tropical maladies that left her disabled for years. In a highly publicized lawsuit she accused MGM of reckless endangerment but ultimately settled for a paltry $45,000. After three minor roles in B pictures, Booth never worked in films again. (bio by: Robert Edwards)

He was born in Salt Lake City, but his family moved to California.  In the 1950s, his family belonged to the Santa Monica Stake.  He entered films in the 1960s as a cowboy stunt man.  He achieved star status in the 1980s with such films as The Thing (1981), Hotel New Hampshire(1984), The Natural (1984) and Cocoon (1986). For a time, he worked as the commercial spokesperson for the Quaker Oats company. LDS audiences might know him best from Brigham City.
