Biography

In films from 1941, pert brunette leading lady Jean Porter was quickly signed by MGM, where she clicked with the public as a manic autograph hound in The Youngest Profession (1942). Porter went on to prominent roles in such MGM productions as Andy Hardy's Blonde Trouble (1944), Abbott and Costello in Hollywood (1945), and Easy to Wed (1946). In the late '40s, she married writer/director Edward Dmytryk, then virtually retired from films. Jean Porter briefly returned to the screen in a supporting role in the Dmytryk-directed The Left Hand of God (1955). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
