Actress Laura Hope Crews' star twinkled brightest in the 1920s when she successfully interpreted A. A. Milne's plays on the stage for the American public.

The actress, who never recognized less than a seven-day workweek, also gained her share of fame under the klieg lights, turning in competent performances in such motion pictures as "Charming Sinners," "The Blue Bird," "Lady With Red Hair, "The Man Who Came to Dinner" and "One Foot in Heaven."

She is perhaps best remembered as Aunt Pittypat Hamilton in "Gone With the Wind" in 1939.

Crews' last appearance was in the stage farce, "Arsenic and Old Lace" in 1942.
