Lizabeth Virginia Scott, nascida Emma Matzo, (Scranton, 29 de setembro de 1922Los Angeles, 31 de janeiro de 2015) foi uma atriz estadunidense.[1]

Biografia[editar | editar código-fonte]

Lizabeth Scott nasceu Emma Matzo em 29 de setembro de 1922 em Scranton, Pensilvânia, a mais velha de seis filhos de Mary (Pennock) e John Matzo, emigrantes ucranianos. Com formação teatral, começou por tentar a sua sorte como modelo. Em 1942, ela foi escolhida para ser a atriz substituta de Tallulah Bankhead em Thornton Wilder’s The Skin of Our Teeth na Broadway. Acabou por se estrear no cinema com o drama Além da Morte (1945), de John Farrow. O papel lhe trouxe alguma popularidade, sendo de imediato convidada para contracenar com Barbara Stanwyck e Kirk Douglas em O Tempo Não Apaga (1946), de Lewis Milestone, e logo a seguir com Humphrey Bogart em Confissão (1947), dirigido por John Cromwell, por certo o seu papel mais conhecido.

Distinguiu-se ainda em dramas como Tormento de uma Glória (1949), de Jacques Tourneur, e A Cidade Tenebrosa (1950), de William Dieterle, e até na comédia Morrendo de Medo (1953), em que contracenava com Dean Martin e Jerry Lewis, sob a direção de George Marshall. Sem nunca ter alcançado o estatuto de estrela, foi se afastando de Hollywood ao longo da década de 1950, começando a trabalhar sobretudo em televisão. Abandonou a carreira em meados da década de 1960, tendo apenas surgido em 1972 no filme policial Diário de um Gângster, protagonizado por Michael Caine e dirigido por Mike Hodges.

Scott morreu de insuficiência cardíaca aos 92 anos de idade no dia 31 de janeiro de 2015. Ela tem uma estrela na Calçada da Fama em Hollywood.[2]
