Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role 1946
SEX WORKER ROLE
Mother Red Cap in Forever Amber 1947
Character Is A Madam
In “Forever Amber,” Anne Revere plays a Madam, the leader of a gang of thieves. The female protagonist, Amber, played by Linda Darnell, begins working as a prostitute for Mother Red Cap (The character Anne plays). Anne only has one scene in this film and is never seen again! Considering this movie was made in the 1940s, her screen time is probably short because the censors nixed any sex onscreen. Anne would continue to work until 1951 when her film career abruptly stopped after her name was added to the infamous “Hollywood Blacklist.” She would have to wait 20 years before being offered another film role.
