Mary Astor’s birthday
Originally shared by Amanda Garrett
Mary Astor was born Lucile Langhanke on May 3, 1906, in Quincy, Ill. Astor started out in silent films, and she became one of the great stars in pre-code Hollywood. Astor’s career faltered a bit in the mid-thirties, but she made a sensational comeback in 1941 when she played femme fatale Brigid O’Shaughnessy in The Maltese Falcon (1941).
