Martha Hyer

9 August 1924 to 30 May 2014

An American actress who was signed by RKO in 1946, Hyer’s screen career didn’t take off until she starred in Billy Wilder’s Sabrina (1954) and notable roles in the likes of Lucky Me (1954) and Houseboat (1958) followed. She went on to carve out a niche playing beautiful but cold women in a number of soapy features before retiring from acting in the early 1970s.
