There are some really underrated actresses in classic films. Some that I love that never got their due. Some of the best of them are
Teresa Wright
Betty Hutton
Thelma Ritter, tell me she didn't do a great job in 'Rear Window'
Jessie Royce Landis

Who do you think didn't their fair share of accolades?

Emily (egwinfrey) I agree about Thelma Ritter. She steals every scene in The Misfits and she's wonderful in Rear Window. I also like her role in Pillow Talk.

Yes! Eve Arden is underrated. She was really great in Cover Girl with Gene Kelly and Rita Hayworth, too. She always had smart, funny lines.

Yes, she is totally underrated. She was great in 'Mildred Pierce'.

I think Mary Astor is too, she was in Maltese Falcon, she was wonderful, all out for her. LOL. I love the lines in that movie some of the best dialogue ever.

Emily (egwinfrey) Judy Holliday!

Love her in Born Yesterday, Phffft!, It Should Happen to You, and Adam's Rib.
