Jeanette Nolan dies at 86

June 16, 1998

Actress Jeanette Nolan, who had a 70-year career in radio, stage, television and film, died Friday, June 5, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center following a stroke. She was 86.

Most recently, Nolan portrayed Robert Redford’s mother in “The Horse Whisperer,” shot in Montana, where she had a ranch.

She is perhaps best remembered for her first screen role as Lady Macbeth in 1948’s “Macbeth,” in which she played opposite actor-director Orson Welles.

She appeared in several TV Westerns, including “Laredo,” “Gunsmoke” and, with late husband John McIntire, “The Virginian” and “Wagon Train.” Among her films credits were “Saddle Tramp,” “The Seventh Cavalry,” “Guns of Fort Petticoat,” “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” and “The Big Heat.”

A native of Los Angeles, Nolan began acting with the Pasadena Community Playhouse and moved into radio while a student at Los Angeles City College. She made her radio debut in 1932 in “Omar Khayyam,” the first transcontinental broadcast from radio station KHJ.

Nolan essayed numerous roles in mystery and detective shows, including episodes of “Perry Mason,” “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” “I Spy,” “The FBI,” “Harry O,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “MacGyver.” Emmy-nominated four times, she appeared in more than 300 television programs.

In later years, Nolan was a voice in Disney’s animated “The Rescuers” and “The Fox and the Hound” and performed for California Artists Radio Theatre.
