About Beatrice Straight (1914 – 2001)

Beatrice Straight was a native of Long Island and the daughter of a banker. Her father hobnobbed with Henry Pierpont Morgan.  After many years on the New York stage, she appeared in films. 

For her small but meaty role in NETWORK, as the outraged wife of  a cheating television executive, she received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

In 1981, she played a mom in Franco Zeffirelli's ENDLESS LOVE, the star-crossed love story of two teens.

In the 1982 horror hit, POLTERGEIST, Beatrice Straight played Dr. Martha Lesh, a paranormal investigator.  The Steven Spielberg movie explores the increasingly frightening effects of malicious ghosts upon an average family with three children, living in a suburban housing development, that was build on top of a burial ground; never a good idea!
