Biography by Hal Erickson
Scottish-born actress Mary Ure preferred the theater to movies, period; her entire cinematic output consists of nine films, some of which she made merely to please her husbands. In 1959, Ure recreated her stage characterization of Alison Porter in Look Back in Anger, written by husband number one, John Osborne. In 1968, she showed up as Mrs. George Armstrong Custer in Custer of the West, which starred husband number two, Robert Shaw. She was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in the 1960 film version of Sons and Lovers, and starred in the London stage productions of such American plays as A View From the Bridge and The Crucible. Shortly after opening in a new play in London in 1975, 42-year-old Mary Ure died accidentally after consuming whiskey and tranquilizers.
