Great stars of both screen and stage.
They never starred together but they share a unique trait.
Both won TWO Oscars and TWO Tony Awards.
And they are the only two actors (so far) who’ve accomplished that feat.
March won best actor Oscar for…..
1931’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and for….
1946’s The Best Years of Our Lives. That March above gazing at costar Myrna Loy.
March, who died of prostate cancer at age 77 in 1975, won his two Tony Wards for 1947’s Ruth Gordon outing, Years Ago, and the 1956 version of Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night.
Helen Hayes, known as the First Lady of the American Theater, won a best actress Oscar for….
…1931’s The Sin of Madelon Claudet and a best supporting actress nod for…
…1970’s Airport. That’s Jacqueline Bisset lending Helen a helping hand in the disaster film.
Hayes led a long life (she died in 1993 at age 92, and enjoyed a long career. Her two Tony Awards were for 1958’s The Duchess of Point au Bronc and 1947’s Happy Birthday.
