Short career, great success
“Martha Ruth Haworth aka Martha Stewart” went “peacefully in the presence of her family and cat.” Stewart began her career as a singer and landed her first role in the film “Doll Face” in 1945. In 1947 she appeared together with Henry Fonda (1905-1982) and Joan Crawford (1905-1977) in the drama “Daisy Kenyon” before she appeared in front of the camera with Bogart three years later in the crime thriller “Ein Einsamer Ort”. 1952 followed another appearance in the musical film “Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick”. It was only twelve years later, in 1965, that she was seen for the last time in an episode of the TV series “My Three Sons”.
The number three played an important role in love: Stewart was married three times and had three children with her third husband, David Shelley. Her son David died in 2015 of complications from cancer.
