Anita Louise as Titania in Max Reinhardt's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Warner Brothers, 1935


Anita Louise (9 January 1915, New York City – 25 April 1970, West Los Angeles), American film actress best known for her performances in A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Story of Louis Pasteur, Anthony Adverse, and Marie Antoinette. She made her acting debut on Broadway at the age of six, and later worked steadily in Hollywood, frequently on prestige pictures. But as the Thirties wore on she was increasingly cast in supporting roles, and by the 1940s began to make fewer film appearances. With the advent of television, her career picked up again; one of her best known roles was as the mother on My Friend Flicka. Married to film producer Buddy Adler from 1940 until his death, she was also known as one of Hollywood's great hostesses. After Adler's death, she married again but died of a stroke at the age of fifty-five.
