Judith Evelyn (March 20, 1909 – May 7, 1967) was an American stage and film actress who appeared in as many as fifty films and television series. She was born Evelyn Morris in Seneca, South Dakota. Evelyn appeared on Broadway in the following plays: Three of the four plays (the excluded one being the unsuccessful The Rich Full Life) were made into films, but Evelyn did not appear in any of them. Angel Street became far more famous on film in the U.S. as the 1944 Gaslight, which starred Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. (It had been previously filmed in 1939 in England, with Diana Wynyard and Anton Walbrook, but that version was suppressed in the U.S. by MGM, which filmed the 1944 version.) Craig's Wife was filmed three times, first in 1928, then in 1936, starring Rosalind Russell. It was re-written and remade somewhat more successfully in 1950 as Harriet Craig, starring Joan Crawford. Evelyn also appeared in numerous films, probably most memorably as "Miss Lonelyhearts," the lonely alcoholic spied on by James Stewart in Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window. In 1956, Evelyn played the role of Nancy Lynnton in George Stevens' Giant.
