TriviaShe was one of the cast members of the ill fated film The Conqueror (1956), which was filmed in 1954 in the Nevada desert close by to where the government was doing nuclear testing. In later years those tests were suspected to have caused the cancer deaths of several of the films stars including John Wayne, Dick Powell, Susan Hayward and Pedro Armendáriz. Her limousine is on display at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Entered New York's Academy of Dramatic Arts, studying alongside Rosalind Russell. Taught high school, directed school plays, and coached oratory in Soldiers Grove, WI. The team won numerous contests. Favorite color was purple - she was so fond of the color friends called her the "lavender lady." Took in foster son Sean shortly after final separation from first husband Jack G. Lee. First woman to co-host the Academy Awards (with Dick Powell) in 1948. She did not enjoy filming "Bewitched" (1964), since it forced her to get up at 4:45 a.m., start makeup at 6:00 a.m. and continue filming often until 8:00 p.m. Although her death has been reported as being caused by lung cancer, this is not true, because the cancer started in her uterus and spread to her lungs. Agnes died of cancer as did almost every actor and crew member of the film, The Conqueror (1956). This included Susan Hayward, John Wayne and director Dick Powell, to name just a few. Some people strongly believe that, unknown by those involved with it at the time, the film was shot on a former nuclear testing site.
