Angeline Dickinson (born September 30, 1931) is an American television and film actress. In Kansas City, thousands of
mourning fans were at the train station when her coffin was returned for
interment in the local Calvary Cemetery. Rio Bravo (1959). Three medical practitioners gave three different causes for her death, all of which pointed to alcohol and drug abuse. Ocean's Eleven (1960).

This play was a modest success, and after a season on Broadway, she
took a break to make a movie. After much speculation about her next play, she chose a comedy Her
Cardboard Lover (1927) in which she appeared on stage with Leslie
The marriage was a stormy one and they divorced in 1928.
Critics raved about her tense, smoldering, and vivid performance. She played the character of Sadie Thompson, a free-wheeling and free-loving spirit who confronts a fire-and-brimstone preacher on a South Pacific island. She appeared in several other Broadway shows once she returned, but in 1922 she made her first appearance as a star in a bone fide hit- Rain. She had to quit this show due to illness (probably sinusitis) and she subsequently travelled to Europe.
In 1918 she appeared in Daddies, a David Belasco production, and won even more notice. Eagels eventually won recognition and kudos playing opposite the stage actor George Arliss in three successive plays. In 1916 and 1917 she made three films for Thanhouser Film Corporation. Her acting career blossomed, and in 1914 she appeared in her first motion picture role.
Although she struggled for recognition as a dramatic actress, her beauty, talent and luck led to her getting bigger parts in better shows. She changed the spelling of her surname to "Eagels", allegedly because this spelling looked better in lights. At one point her acting coach was Beverly Sitgreaves, who had once shared the stage with the great French actress Sarah Bernhardt. She started out as a chorus girl and this led to appearances in the chorus of the Ziegfeld Follies (i.e., as a Ziegfeld Girl).
In or around 1911, she came to New York City and had to start at the bottom again. At first she was a dancer, but in time she went on to play the leading lady in several popular comedies and dramas put on by the Dubinskys. Her ambitions were such that she left Kansas City around the age of 12 and toured the Midwest with the Dubinsky Brothers' traveling theater show. It was there that she began her acting career, appearing in a variety of small venues at a very young age.
