Biography

A capable lead, Snodgress worked in episodic television and on the Chicago stage before making her screen mark in the riveting comedy-drama, "Diary of a Mad Housewife" (1970) which earned her a 1970 Best Actress Oscar nomination. She interrupted her blossoming career to raise her son but returned to the screen in Brian De Palma's "The Fury" (1978). Since then, her features have ranged from forgettable ("A Night in Heaven" 1983) to passable (the heavy-handed "Pale Rider" 1985) to intriguing ("The Ballad of Little Jo" 1993).
