Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role 1955
Plays Character That Is Related To The Sex Trade Industry
Eve Kendall in North By Northwest 1959
Character Is A Spy Seductress
Early in her career Eva Marie Saint was typecast as the actress to go to for the plain Jane type roles. So it was surprise when Alfred Hitchcock insisted on casting Saint as his latest femme fatale in North By Northwest. This was not just any bad girl part. Eve Kendall was a duplicitous spy seductress and double agent. In a nutshell Cary Grant is running from the bad guys. Eva Marie Saint meets up with Grant’s character, seduces him, then sends him off to be killed by the bad guys. One of whom is her boyfriend!
