      Mini biography
      A product of Marysvale, Utah, Marie Windsor attended Brigham Young University and trained for the stage under
      Maria Ouspenskaya before she began playing leading roles in B pictures in the late 1940s.
      Her best work was in the film noir category, particularly her role as the manipulative,
      double-crossing wife of Elisha Cook, Jr.
      , in "The Killing" (which earned her "Look" magazine's Best Supporting Actress award).
      Her favorites among her own films are "The Killing, " "The Narrow Margin" and "Hellfire."

      Mini Biography-2
      from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:
      One of the best "bad girls" in movie history, this busty beauty often played cold-blooded temptresses
      who could drive a man crazy with passion, then cut out his heart and hand it back to him.
      A former Miss Utah, she broke into films as a bit player in Hal Roach's AllAmerican Co-Ed (1941),
      and knocked around Hollywood before coming into her own as a leading lady in 1949's Hellfire an above-average Republic Western.
      She appeared in other B-plus horse operas, including Dakota Lil, Frenchie (both 1950), and Little Big Horn (1951),
      before taking her best-remembered role, as the recalcitrant gangster's widow being transported to court by tough cop
      Charles McGraw in The Narrow Margin (1952). Had this taut thriller not been a lowly B (albeit one of the best ever),
      Windsor might have gotten more of a boost from its success. She continued working steadily, frequently playing tart-tongued trollops-as in Stanley Kubrick's The Killing (1956), memorably cast as Elisha Cook, Jr.'s avaricious, unfaithful wife.

      Windsor also worked in many TV movies during the 1970s and 1980s, including Wild Women (1971)
      and the 1979 miniseries "Salem's Lot." Unfortunately, she never starred in a first-rate, big-budget film.

    • Marie Windsor. Born as Emily Marie Bertelson in Marysvale, Piute County, Utah,
      Windsor was an actress known as "The Queen of the Bs"
      because she appeared in so many B-movies and film noirs.

      Marie Windsor made just 3 films with Duke, and they were:-

      Cahill U.S. Marshal (1973) .... Mrs. Hetty Green
      Trouble Along the Way (1953) .... Anne McCormick
      The Fighting Kentuckian (1949) .... Ann Logan



      Marie is one of Duke's lesser known co-stars,
      mainly because she never starred in a major, big budget film.

    • I thought she did a good job as the Duke's cheating ex-wife in Trouble Along the Way. I don't really remember her in anything else, though it has been a long time since I have seen either The Fighting Kentuckian or Cahill.
