TriviaShe was blacklisted with her husband in 1948. Was going to play the Wicked Witch of The West in the The Wizard of Oz (1939), but instead of making the witch similar to Snow White's beautiful but wicked queen, as was originally planned, they decided the witch should be ugly. Gale then refused the role. In high school plays, she studied at the Minneapolis School of Dramatic Arts. First actress to win an Oscar for "Best Actress in a Supporting Role" (Anthony Adverse (1936))
