Gas Pains

Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.

Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.

What Wauwatosa personality received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress?

I'll post all of the submitted answers on Friday - including the correct answer.

Good Luck and Go Pack!



Read the submission below - Fritztino wins with the correct answer.

The nominee for best supporting actress, played the young girlfriend of William Holden in the film Sunset Boulevard

Her name was Nancy Olson and she was in the Wauwatosa High School class of 1946. 

Only four years after her high school graduation, she was playing major roles in Hollywood. 

Despite major roles in large films, big screen stardom eluded her, and after marrying composer Alan Jay Lerner, she played second leads in a few films before retiring from acting. After their divorce, she made a return to acting, and started her successful stint with Disney in 1960's Pollyanna. She made four other films for Disney, including The Absent Minded Professor (1961), which is better known to the younger generation as the original version of Robin Williams' 1997 hit film, Flubber (Olson appears in an uncredited cameo in the new film).

Her post-Disney career is unremarkable, with minor roles in Airport 1975 (1974) and Making Love (1982). Television appearances include 1977's Kingston: Confidential (starring Raymond Burr) and 1982's Paper Dolls (opposite Lloyd Bridges).
