Let Us Remember:

On March 14-1975, the beautiful and talented Susan Hayward died at age 56.

I find it surprising that after 43 years that there have been no films made about Susan Hayward's dramatic and fascinating life. She struggled to escape an impoverished childhood. She went to Hollywood at age 19 to test for the role of Scarlett O' Hara and was nominated for a best actress Academy award five times from 1947, winning the 1958 award for the film I Want To Live.

From 1972 to 1975, she bravely fought brain cancer. She has been recorded in medical records as one of Scarlett the longest survivors of brain cancer.

Susan Hayward's larger than life story needs to be recorded on the silver screen for audiences to appreciate her valuable work in Hollywood history.
