Gloria Stuart was an American actress, artist and activist whose career spanned over a staggering seven decades, in the course of which she appeared in over 50 movies. She made her feature film debut in the 1930s, and subsequently appeared in popular films like The Old Dark House (1932), The Invisible Man (1933) and The Three Musketeers (1939) before abandoning her acting career in the 1940s to pursue other artistic ambitions. Though she made a comeback three decades later through television films like Battered (1978) and The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan (1979), it was her portrayal of the older Rose Dawson in the epic romance-disaster film Titanic (1997) that earned Stuart a permanent place in the collective imagination of film lovers. Her performance in Titanic earned Stuart an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role that year, thereby making her the oldest person nominated for an Oscar (at the age of 87). The 2004 drama film Land of Plenty was Stuart's final outing as an actress, and she passed away in 2010, at the age of 100. Other significant acting credits include The Girl in 419 (1933), The Prisoner of Shark Island (1936), Here Comes Elmer (1943) and The Love Letter (1999).
