Lee Grant was the only child of Abraham W. Rosenthal, a realtor and educator, and Witia, an actress and teacher. When she was only four years of age, Lee debuted at the Metropolitan Opera and later studied at the Art Students League of New York. After that, Grant continued her education at The High School of Music & Art and Juilliard School of Music and then matriculated from the George Washington High School.
Lee performed ballet at the Metropolitan Opera House in her teens, and later made it to Broadway before her first on-screen credit in an episode of the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated “Actor’s Studio” in 1950. Grant’s first feature movie was William Wyler’s Oscar Award-nominated “Detective Story” (1951), alongside Kirk Douglas and Eleanor Parker, for which she received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. However, as a result of her refusal to testify against her husband at the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) hearings, Grant’s career suffered as many Hollywood producers blacklisted her, so she found it hard to secure notable roles. After numerous roles on television, Lee co-starred with Fredric March, Kim Novak and Glenda Farrell in Delbert Mann’s Golden Globe Award-nominated “Middle of the Night” (1959).
From 1965 to 1966, she played Stella Chernak in 70 episodes of the Golden Globe Award-nominated series “Peyton Place”, She then appeared alongside Dick Van Dyke, Debbie Reynolds, and Jason Robards in Bud Yorkin’s Oscar -nominated comedy “Divorce American Style” (1967), and continued as Mrs. Colbert in Norman Jewison’s Oscar Award-winning mystery called “In the Heat of the Night” (1967) starring Sidney Poitier. By the end of the ‘60s, Grant had played in a Golden Globe Award-nominated “Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell” (1968) with Gina Lollobrigida, Shelley Winters, and Phil Silvers, and in John Sturges’ Oscar Award-winning “Marooned” (1969) starring Gregory Peck, Richard Crenna, and David Janssen, so her net worth was rising steadily.
In 1970, Grant received her second Oscar Award nomination for her role as Mrs. Enders in Hal Ashby’s romantic comedy “The Landlord” with Beau Bridges. The following year, she won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Single Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in Frank Pierson’s “The Neon Ceiling”, and then teamed up with Hal Ashby again in 1975 in the comedy “Shampoo” with Warren Beatty and Julie Christie; the role of Felicia secured Lee her first and only Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. Thanks to the successful characters and movies in the 70’s, Grant’s net worth significantly increased as she became a millionaire.
The next year, Lee earned another Oscar Award nomination for her role of Lili Rosen in Stuart Rosenberg’s war-drama called the “Voyage of the Damned” (1976) with Faye Dunaway and Oskar Werner, and ended the decade with parts in such films as Jerry Jameson’s Oscar Award-nominated “Airport ’77” (1977) and “Damien: Omen II” (1978), in which she played alongside William Holden.
Grant’s career took a step down in the ’80s, but she managed to get parts in several notable movies such as “Visiting Hours” (1982) and Arthur Hiller’s comedy “Teachers” (1984) starring Nick Nolte, JoBeth Williams and Judd Hirsch. In 1991, she appeared alongside Albert Brooks, Meryl Streep and Rip Torn in “Defending Your Life”, and then played Dora Cohn in Frank Pierson’s Golden Globe Award-nominated TV movie “Citizen Cohn” (1992) with John Woods in the lead. Lee portrayed Louise Bonner in both TV and feature movie versions of David Lynch’s Oscar Award-nominated “Mulholland Drive”, while her latest film was “Going Shopping” (2005).
