About This Item
This “Star” series of travel bugs is to bring attention to my favorite movie actors. Some have awards, some do not. There is no criterion to be included as a favorite beyond I will watch anything that has her/him in it.
Kathleen Doyle Bates was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, the youngest of three daughters born to Langdon Doyle Bates, a mechanical engineer, and his homemaker wife Bertye Talbot. Kathy's great-great Irish grandfather, who emigrated to New Orleans, once served as President Andrew Jackson's doctor. She discovered acting appearing in high school plays and studied drama at Southern Methodist University, graduating in 1969. With her mind firmly set, she moved to New York City in 1970 and paid her dues by working everything from a cash register to taking lunch orders.
It was her fanatical turn as the drab, chunky, porcine-looking psychopath Annie Wilkes, who kidnaps her favorite author (James Caan) and subjects him to a series of horrific tortures, that finally turned the tide for her in Hollywood. With the 1990 shocker Misery (1990). Kathy captured the "Best Actress" Oscar and Golden Globe award.
Quality film scripts now started coming her way. She and another older "overnight" film star, fellow Oscar winner Jessica Tandy, starred together in Fried Green Tomatoes (1991). She then outdid herself as the detached and depressed housekeeper in Dolores Claiborne (1995). These are my two favorite movies.
