Edith Norma Shearer was a Canadian-American actress who was active in motion pictures during the "Golden Age of Hollywood", often portraying spunky, sexually liberated ingénues. During her 23-year career, she appeared in adaptations of Noël Coward, Eugene O'Neill and William Shakespeare. Reviewing Shearer's work, film critic and author Mick LaSalle called her "the exemplar of sophisticated 1930s womanhood ... exploring love and sex with an honesty that would be considered frank by modern standards." He described her as a feminist pioneer, "the first American actress to make it chic and acceptable to be single and not a virgin on screen."
