Eve Arden (April 30, 1908 – November 12, 1990) was a television, radio, stage, and film actress. Her almost 60-year career crossed most media frontiers with both supporting and leading roles, but Eve Arden may be best-remembered for playing the sarcastic but engaging title character, a high school teacher, in “Our Miss Brooks” (1956), and as the Rydell High School principal in both “Grease” (1978) and “Grease 2” (1982). Arden’s many other memorable screen roles include a supporting role as Joan Crawford’s wise-cracking friend in “Mildred Pierce” (1945) for which she received an Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actress, and James Stewart’s wistful secretary in Otto Preminger’s then-explicit murder mystery, “Anatomy of a Murder” (1959). Eve Arden was awarded two Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Television at 6714 Hollywood Boulevard and for Radio at 6329 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
