About Lizabeth Scott

Lizabeth Virginia Scott (born Emma Matzo; September 29, 1922 – January 31, 2015) was an American actress and a model for the Walter Thornton Modeling Agency, known for her “smoky voice” and being “the most beautiful face of film noir during the 1940s and 1950s”. After understudying the role of Sabina in the original Broadway and Boston stage productions of ‘The Skin of Our Teeth’, she emerged in such films as ‘The Strange Love of Martha Ivers’, ‘Dead Reckoning’, ‘Desert Fury’, and ‘Too Late for Tears’.

Of her 22 films, Scott was the leading lady in all but one. In addition to stage and radio, she appeared on television from the late 1940s to early 1970s, starring repetitively on CBS and also making appearances on NBC and US Treasury Department. Scott’s final appearance in film was the 1972 film ‘Pulp’, alongside Michael Caine. Learn More…
