Barbara Loden Biography

At the time of her death from breast cancer at the age of 48, she was married to the director Elia Kazan, by whom she had one child. A life member of The Actors Studio, Loden was perhaps best known for her role in Kazan's film, Splendor in the Grass (1961), in which she played Warren Beatty's sister, as well as for portraying a fictionalized version of Marilyn Monroe in Kazan's stage production of After the Fall (1964), written by Monroe's former husband, playwright Arthur Miller.
