her sole Oscar nomination, as Best Actress, for the World War I-era
romance Three Comrades (1938). She co-starred in four films with
James Stewart, with whom she and Fonda had acted in a stock company when

Street, Appointment for Love (all 1941) and Cry 'Havoc'
Died January 1, 1960
Sullavan suffered from depression and a congenital hearing defect in
her left ear called otosclerosis that worsened as she aged, making her
more and more hard of hearing. She was found dead in a hotel room in New
Haven, Connecticut, having died from a deliberate overdose of
barbiturates at the age of 50.
