Bearbeiten Karriere
Sie wurde als als Tochter des deutschen Einwanderers Otto Ludwig Langhanke geboren. Besonders ihr Vater f¶rderte die Tochter und Mary Astor gewann schon als Kind zahlreiche Sch¶nheitswettbewerbe. Bereits mit 15 Jahren unterschrieben ihre Eltern f¼r sie einen Filmvertrag in Hollywood . Ihr Durchbruch erfolgte nach 1924 mit dem Film Beau Brummel an der Seite von John Barrymore . Schon damals war Astor bekannt f¼r ihr turbulentes Privatleben und sie begann w¤hrend der Dreharbeiten eine heftige Aff¤re mit Barrymore, die viele Schlagzeilen nach sich zog. Mary Astor schaffte den Sprung zum Tonfilm relativ gut und spielte eine Vielzahl von Nebenrollen und bekam gelegentlichen auch die weibliche Hauptrollen. Meist beschr¤nkte sich ihre Mitwirkung jedoch auf Auftritte in B-Filmen. Zu den wenigen Ausnahmen geh¶rte die Rolle der sympathischen Freundin des Helden in Dodsworth unter der Regie von William Wyler Erst mit dem Wechsel zu Warner Brothers Anfang der 1940er erhielt ihre Karriere Auftrieb.

Elle débute aussitôt à Hollywood et devient, une actrice de premier plan, jouant son premier grand rôle dans "Beau Brummell" avec John Barrymore dont elle devient la maîtresse. ll la délaisse et elle se console auprès du réalisateur Kenneth Hawks (1898-1930). Mary Astor trouve cependant l'énergie pour ne pas interrompre son travail. Après avoir interprété les rôles d'ingénues en détresse, elle incarnait la femme d'âge mûr, cultivée et ambitieuse, intelligente avec une pointe de perversité dans "Le Faucon Maltais" avec Humphrey Bogart. Sans jamais devenir une vedette, elle fut toujours une actrice de grand talent, s'acquittant avec la même justesse d'un rôle ingrat dans l'épouse hypocrite de "La Belle De Saigon" (1932) avec Jean Harlow et Clark Gable et d'un rôle sympathique dans Dodsworth (1936) où elle irradie le charme et la sérénité. Les années n'entament en rien ses possibilités. Elle est une inoubliable dans le rôle de Brigid 0'Shaughnessy, pleine de duplicité, névrosée et ravageuse, dans "Le Faucon Maltais" (1941). Dans le Grand Mensonge (1941) qui lui vaut un Oscar où elle tient bravement tête à Bette Davis.

Mary Astor Born 3 May 1906 in Quincy, Illinois, USA, as Lucile Vasconcells Langhanke.
Died 25 September 1987 in Woodland Hills, California, USA, of a heart attack. Married to director Kenneth Hawks on 26 February 1928; Hawks killed in plane accident on 2 January 1930. Married doctor Franklyn Thorpe in June 1931. Lucile Vasconcells Langhanke , the beautiful young girl from Illinois came to the attention of film producers in 1920, at the age of 14, while participating in a beauty pageant. Accepting small film roles in 1921, Lucile was cut from her first film Sentimental Tommy (1921), a feature film for Famous Players-Lasky , ending up on the cutting room floor. But persistence paid off gradually as she continued working in low-budget short films and soon graduated to supporting roles in feature films. The striking actress was by then renamed Mary Astor. leading lady in Beau Brummel (1924) for Warner Brothers. It should be no surprise that the dashing Barrymore was attracted to his teenage costar and that she should be infatuated with the screen and stage legend, but their affair lasted only until he became amorously attached to Dolores Costello, whom he married in 1928. Regardless of their broken romance, Barrymore and Astor appeared together successfully in

The Delicate, Velvet-voiced Actress!
Mary Astor was born, Lucile Vascincellos Langhanke, on May 3, 1906 in Quincy, Illinois to German immigrant parents. Her parents were very ambitious for her as they recognized Mary's beauty and knowing if they played their cards right, they could make her famous. They understood that they wanted something better for their daughter than they had, so they made it happen by pushing Mary into various beauty contests. Luck was with Mary and her parents because one contest came to the attention of Hollywood moguls who signed her at the age of 14. Her first movie was a bit part in SCARECROW in 1920. It wasn't much, but it was a start. Throughout 1921-1923 she continued her career with bit or minor roles in a number of motion pictures. In 1924, Mary landed a plum assignment with a role as Lady Margery Alvaney opposite the great John Barrymore in the film BEAU BRUMMEL. This launched her career to stardom as it did with a lively affair with Barrymore. However the affair ended before she could star with him again in the 1926 classic DON JUAN. Mary was, now, the new cinematic darling with each film packing the theaters. By the end of the twenties, the sound revolution had taken a strong hold on the industry and Mary was one of those lucky actresses who made the successful transition to "talkies" because of her voice and strong screen presence.

MARY ASTOR: Reluctant Legend
By Barrie Roberts Among the legendary names of Hollywoodâs Golden Age, Mary Astorâs star shines brightly. Strictly speaking, however, Mary was never a star in the accepted sense of her time, but a featured player. This was of her own choosing. Offered starring contracts at various times, she preferred not to shoulder the responsibility of having her name appear above the title of a film. This decision was due largely to a lack of confidence generated by a childhood dominated by demanding parents who looked upon her as a meal ticket. The public with whom she was very popular nevertheless regarded her as a star. Her career lasted an incredible 44 years, during which time she ran the gamut from limpid ingenue to forceful character player.
In 1919 Lucile submitted her photograph to a Fame and Fortune contest sponsored by Motion Picture magazine. She placed among the finalists. This was enough to convince her father to move his family to Chicago, where the magazine had offices. Deemed far too young, when seen in person, she was advised to try again when she was older. She did, and was again placed among the finalists. This time the judges named her runner up in the national contest.
It was 1920, and Langhanke felt encouraged to move his family once again, this time to New York to launch his daughterâs career. Once in Manhattan Lucileâs picture caught the eye of photographer Charles Albin, who shot a series of camera studies of the girl titled The Madonna Child. These photographs were seen in turn by Harry Durant of Jesse Laskyâs Famous Players company, and this led to a six-month contract for Lucile with Paramount in New York. During a conference with writer Louella Parsons and producer Walter Wanger, Jesse Lasky promptly renamed the girl Mary Astor.

Why Is There a Mary Astor, Rather Than No Mary Astor?
Posted by Belle Waring Pursuant to a discussion of the recently popular Teachout Cultural Concurrence Index, Will Baude makes the following remarks
The Maltese Falcon
, a movie which is marred by the single most egregious miscasting of all time. (Perhaps it is not the worst in absolute terms, but it is a hideous flaw in an otherwise brilliantly cast movie.) I refer, of course, to the wretched, wretched Mary Astor I asked my grandmother whether Mary Astor had ever Ladies Love Brutes . (Note that even in this film, at the alleged age of 24, she plays a striking .) OK, she had a sort of winsome charm in her early silents, and the shellacked hair suits her ( go see for yourself ). But, honestly, what were they thinking with The Maltese Falcon ? Just think how much better it could have been with Lauren Bacall . (OK, OK too young at 17. But still.) The Misfits , and the raddled (though in principle well-loved) Fred Astaire making time with a grateful(!) Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face Sabrina .) Thoughts?
