Geraldine Mary Fitzgerald (November 24, 1913 – July 17, 2005) was an Irish actress and a member of the American Theatre Hall of Fame.


Fitzgerald was married to Sir Edward Lindsay-Hogg, 4th Bt., in London on November 18, 1936. She was granted a divorce in Reno on August 30, 1946, after three years of separation. She had one child, director Michael Lindsay-Hogg by her first marriage, and a daughter, Susan Scheftel, by her second marriage, in 1946, to American businessman Stuart Scheftel.

Her son's resemblance to Orson Welles, with whom she had worked and been linked with romantically in the late 1930s, led to rumors Welles was the boy's father. Fitzgerald never confirmed this to her son, but in his 2011 autobiography Lindsay-Hogg reported that his mother's friend Gloria Vanderbilt had revealed that Welles was his natural father.

She was a great aunt of actress Tara Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald died at age 91 in New York City following a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease.

Montgomery "Monty" Capuletti (Rodney Dangerfield) is a hard-living, heavy-drinking, pot-smoking, gambling family man who makes his living as a baby photographer in New Dorp, Staten Island. He loves his wife Rose (Candy Azzara) but has a very tense relationship with his wealthy, snobbish mother-in-law, Mrs. Monahan (Geraldine Fitzgerald), who runs a successful department store chain and hates the way Monty acts and lives (the film lightly touches on ethnic rivalry---Dangerfield's character is a stereotype of Italians often invoked by the Irish, while his wife's family represent the more puritanical, staid lace curtain Irish stereotypes).
