Fay was the first actress to win nominations in both the lead and supporting actress categories in the same year. Nominated for “White Banners,” she lost the Lead Actress Oscar to her “Jezebel” co-star Bette Davis. However, Bainter won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in that same film. Five years earlier, she played a hooker in the 1933 stage production of “Move On, Sister,” written by Daniel N. Rubin. In the play, Fay plays the role of Alice Drave. After her boyfriend terminates their relationship, she turns to prostitution to make a living. Years later, Alice is stunned to learn she has inherited her former boyfriend’s entire fortune – worth millions of dollars. The play flopped on Broadway, only lasting one week.
