In 1949, opened at Hollywood’s Ivar Theatre in Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie. She says she would never have had the guts to go on stage if she had not been paralyzed. She receives a spontaneous standing ovation, led by Richard Quine; it takes her by surprise.
Actor Charles Bickford brought to her attention a novel he has just read, Sign of the Ram, by Margaret Ferguson. The leading character is a paralyzed woman who wrecks her family by domination and murder. She discusses the novel with her agent, Frank Orsatti, who in turn interests producer-director Irving Cummings. A deal is set with Columbia Studios. Columbia players such as Glenn Ford, Evelyn Keyes, Larry Parks, Cornel Wilde, Ginger Rogers and co-stars Alexander Knox and Peggy Ann Garner greet her on her first day on the set. She knows people will come to see how she looks in a wheelchair, but if they leave thinking she’s an actress, she’ll be satisfied. The production is grueling on her. She has to have her husband or her aunt, Mary Carnahan, a trained nurse, with her throughout filming.
