    Kim Hunter performed in the original Broadway production of A Streetcar Named Desire (1947), playing the role of Stella Kowalski. She later appeared in the 1951 film version, for which she won both the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture. Sadly, Hunter was blacklisted from film and television in the 1950s, amid suspicions of communism in Hollywood, during the McCarthy era (ironically, Streetcar director Elia Kazan gave her name to the House Un-American Activities Committee). Hunter did some radio, television, and foreign movie work, then she played Zira, the sympathetic chimpanzee scientist in the 1968 film Planet of the Apes and two sequels. Allegedly, Hunter spent so long in ape make-up that Charlton Heston did not recognize her when, after several months of filming, he saw her out of make-up for the first time. Hunter also starred in the controversial (and pretty disgusting) TV movie Born Innocent (1974) playing the mother of Linda Blair’s character (Poor Linda! First, The Exorcist in 1973, when she was only 13, then BI (with the infamous plunger scene) one year later, not to mention such cinematic gems as Exorcist II, Stranger In Our House, Hell Night, Chained Heat, Savage Streets, Terror In The Aisles, Savage Island, Grotesque, Dead Sleep, Repossessed, Fatal Bond, and Prey Of The Jaguar – yikes!). Hunter was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for her work in the soap Edge Of Night and her last film was in 2000.

    Gee, thanks for making anything I’d have to say about her in the next episode superfluous.
