Virginia Weidler

Virginia Weidler (March 21, 1926 – July 1, 1968) was an American child actor, popular in Hollywood films during the 1930s and 1940s.

Born in Eagle Rock, California, Weidler made her first film appearance in 1933. Over the next few years she played minor roles in films for RKO and Paramount Studios. Neither studio made full use of her abilities, and when Paramount did not extend her contract, she was signed by MGM.

Her first film for them was opposite their leading male star Mickey Rooney in Love Is A Headache (1938). The film was a success and over the next few years Weidler was regularly employed by the studio, usually playing precocious tom-boys. She was one of the all-female cast of The Women (1939), as Norma Shearer's daughter, a role that was uncharacteristically sentimental for her.

Her next major success, and the film for which she is perhaps best remembered was The Philadelphia Story (1941) in which she played the wise-cracking younger sister of Katharine Hepburn. She continued acting but by this time was maturing, and as a teenager was less popular with audiences. After a string of box-office disappointments, her film career ended with her final performance in 1943. By her retirment at the age of 17 she had appeared in more than forty films, and had acted with some of the biggest stars of her era, including Clark Gable and Myrna Loy in Too Hot to Handle (1938), Bette Davis in All This and Heaven Too (1940), and Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland in Babes on Broadway (1941), but she was not able to make continue her success as an actor into adulthood.

She married after her retirement and distanced herself from her Hollywood career, and for the rest of her life politely refused any requests for interviews. She died of a heart attack in Los Angeles, California, after suffering the effects of heart disease for several years.

Born in Eagle Rock, California, Weidler made her first film appearance in 1933. When the New York run ended, he received an offer to repeat his performance in Hawaii, opposite Barbara Rush.

Virginia Weidler (March 21, 1926 – July 1, 1968) was an American child actor, popular in Hollywood films during the 1930s and 1940s. On his return to New York, Benedict replaced Keir Dullea in Butterflies Are Free on Broadway where he worked with Gloria Swanson as his mother. This film about draft resisters, shot entirely in Sweden, was written by Maya Angelou. Two weeks after the show closed on Broadway, he was winging across the Atlantic to Sweden for his first movie, Georgia, Georgia in which he co-starred with Diana Sands. An agent sent him to an audition which resulted in a co-starring role with Diana Rigg and Keith Mitchell in Abelard and Heloise, first on Broadway, then in Los Angeles.

Benedict then played repertory theatre in Seattle and in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he played such roles as Edmund in King Lear, Tarleton in Misalliance, Ensign Pulver in Mister Roberts, and the lead in Neil Simon's Star-Spangled Girl. At that time he started to use the stage name 'Benedict'; supposedly, whilst searching for a catchier, more American name, he agreed to the suggestion of "Benedict" by his agent, who was inspired by Dirk eating Eggs Benedict for breakfast during their early morning conversation. Upon graduation, Benedict began a two-year training program under John Fernald, who had headed London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London for fifteen years. The next three years were filled with many more musical productions.

He also joined the Phi Delta Theta fraternity that year, which he credits with supporting his endeavors, and encouraging his development. At Whitman College, in Walla Walla, Washington, Dirk became interested in acting. During his freshman year, he accepted a dare to audition for the Spring musical and won the lead role of Gaylord Ravenal in Show Boat. He was born Dirk Niewoehner, in Helena, Montana, USA. Dirk Benedict (born March 1, 1945) is a movie and television actor, perhaps best known for playing the character "Face" in the television series The A-Team.
