Ann Harding's restrained portrayals of upper-class heroines spanned three-decades of a stage, screen and television career.

Two years after her first appearance in New York, she returned for a major role in the Broadway play "Tarnish," which ran for 248 performances, and then supported Katherine Cornell in "The Green Hat."

Harding made her film debut in 1929, appearing in Philip Barry's "Paris Bound" for Pathe, followed by "Her Private Affair," "Condemned," "Girl of the Golden West," "The Fountain," "Bachelor Girl," "The Witness Chair" and many others.

She returned to the Broadway stage for "Goodbye My Fancy," appeared on television in such shows as "Armstrong Circle Theater," "Burke's Law," "Ben Casey" and 'The Defenders," and wound up her film career in the mid-1950s with roles in "The Magnificent Yankee," "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit" and "Strange Intruder."
