Birth 27 november 1922 (99 years) at Beverly Hills (USA)

Jacqueline White (born November 26, 1922) is a former American film actress. She's probably best remembered appearing in the films noir Crossfire and The Narrow Margin. She usually played either lead actresses in B-movies or supporting parts in A-movies. She usually played the main character, and one of her biggest movies was Mystery in Mexico. White was under contract to both MGM then RKO where she appeared in two classics, Crossfire and The Narrow Margin.

RKO used her as a second lead in A pictures and leading roles in B films. She retired in 1950 upon her marriage to Bruce Anderson and she relocated to Wyoming with her husband who started an oil business. When she returned to Los Angeles for the birth of her first child, she was spotted in the RKO commissary visiting friends by Director Richard Fleischer and Producer Stanley Rubin who offered her a co-starring role in "The Narrow Margin" (1952). White appeared in The Narrow Margin, a film whose release was delayed for two years while Howard Hughes, the studio boss, considered whether to either extensively edit it or reshoot as an A-film with Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell. Eventually, selected scenes were reshot and added in December 1951, nearly a year after the film had originally wrapped. Still active as of 2005, White appears occasionally at film conventions. In 2013, she made an appearance at the annual TCM Film Festival.

In the 1890s, a group of "Harvey Girls" - new waitresses for Fred Harvey's pioneering chain of Harvey House restaurants - travels on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway (AT&SF) to the western town of Sandrock, Arizona. On the trip they meet Susan Bradley (Judy Garland), who travels to the same town to marry the man whose beautiful letters she received when she answered a "lonely-hearts" ad. Unfortunately, when she arrives, the man turns out to be an "old coot" who does not at all meet her expectations – and he also wants not to get married as much as she wants not to marry him, so they agree to call it off. When she learns that someone else, the owner of the local saloon, Ned Trent (John Hodiak), wrote the letters as a joke, she confronts him and tells him off, in the process endearing herself to him.
