Virginia Field was the daughter of a British barrister who abandoned a stage career to portray a series of "other women" in more than 30 films.

Field, who was named Margaret at birth, took the stage name Virginia in deference to her Confederate forebear on her mother's side, Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Among her successes were "Waterloo Bridge," "Captain Fury," "Hudson's Bay," "Dream Girl," "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" and her last, "The Earth Dies Screaming," in 1964.
