Barbara O'Neill (July 17, 1910 – September 3, 1980) was an American film and stage actress. She appeared in Gone with the Wind (1939) and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in All This, and Heaven Too (1940).
O'Neill was born in St Louis, Missouri -- the daughter of poets Barbara Blackman and David O'Neill. Her mother was also a well-known suffragette. Vincent Price and Barbara O'Neill attended the progressive Community School together until they were ten. They were boyfriend and girlfriend -- and Vincent would adore Barbara for the rest of her life.
Barbara was then raised in Connecticut and Europe. The pair reconnected on the East Coast during college (Barbara graduated from Sarah Lawrence and Vincent from Yale) -- and then during their early careers in New York and Hollywood.
This recording was created in the 1930s as a benefit for the Community School. Find out more in Victoria's introduction.
