Faye Dunaway’s Biography

Daughter of a sergeant in the United States Army, studied theater at Boston University and later graduated from the University of Florida.

She started working at the Lincoln Center Repertory Company, where she built a good image as an actress.

Bonnie & amp; Clyde

His debut in the cinema was in 1967, the year in which he chained three films. He participated with minor roles in The Happening (The Event) starring Anthony Quinn, and in Desired Night (Hurry Sundown) by Otto Preminger, with a cast headed by Michael Caine and Jane Fonda. It was also that year when he got the role that would mark his rise in Hollywood: that of the thief and runaway Bonnie Parker in Bonnie & amp; Arthur Penn’s Clyde, where he had Warren Beatty as a couple. This film, considered today a film classic, gave the actress her first Oscar nomination.

In 1968 he co-starred opposite Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Case (he would also star in a remake directed by John McTiernan 30 years later) and in 1969 he starred in Elia Kazan’s The Arrangement, an ambitious film that failed despite the role of Kirk Douglas and Deborah Kerr.


During the decade of the seventies, she became an actress and rubbed shoulders with the main actors of the moment in films that are now considered magisterial. It is the case of: Little great man (1970) with Dustin Hoffman; Chinatown (1974) with Jack Nicholson and John Huston (for which he obtained his second Oscar nomination); The Colossus in Flames (1974) with Paul Newman and Steve McQueen; Three Days of the Condor (1975) with Robert Redford; and Network, a relentless world (1976) with William Holden, Peter Finch and Robert Duvall, a film for which he finally managed to win the Hollywood statuette, and a Golden Globe, thanks to a memorable performance.

He also ventured into European cinema: directed by René Clement he shot the 1971 mansion under the trees, with Frank Langella, and in 1973 he participated in the overproduction The Three Musketeers by Richard Lester.

In 1977 he worked on The Journey of the Damned, in an extensive cast of stars (Orson Welles, Max von Sydow, Ben Gazzara, James Mason, Maria Schell, Fernando Rey …) and in 1978 co-starred with Tommy Lee Jones The eyes of Laura Mars, a thriller whose soundtrack sang the ballad “Prisoner”, which did not have the expected success. Closing the decade acted in another blockbuster: The champion of Franco Zeffirelli, along with John Voight and Ricky Schroder.


In 1981 his histrionic performance was notable in Mommie Dearest (Mamita querida), where he played the legendary actress Joan Crawford. This film, based on a very hard book written by a daughter of Crawford, received mixed reviews at the time of its release, but was a blockbuster (it raised $ 39 million, having cost only 8) and has become the time in cult movie.

In 1984, Faye Dunaway was less fortunate to participate in the failed adaptation of Supergirl starring Helen Slater and directed by Jeannot Szwarc; Although this film had other stars like Peter O’Toole and Mia Farrow, it failed at the box office.

Already with a reputation as a diva (contributed by her reputation as “difficult” or “temperamental” actress) Faye Dunaway dosed her times and projects, although she made many appearances on television, miniseries and several plays. Stresses an Italian-American series on Christopher Columbus (1985), directed by Alberto Lattuada, where he played Isabel la Católica. The cast was led by Gabriel Byrne and included old European and American glories such as Raf Vallone, Elli Wallach, Virna Lisi, Max von Sydow and Elpidia Carrillo.

Dunaway also participated in a three-episode mini-series about emigrants arriving on Ellis Island on their trip to New York (Ellis Island, 1984) where he had Richard Burton as his partner. He won his second Golden Globe for this work. In 1985 he also collaborated on two telefilms adapting adventures of Agatha Christie, where he rubbed shoulders with Donald Sutherland and Peter Ustinov. In 1987 he filmed with Mickey Rourke Barfly (The Drunk), directed by Barbet Schroeder according to an argument by Charles Bukowski; for this role the actress was nominated for a Golden Globe. The following year she worked with Klaus Maria Brandauer in Burning Secret.

In those years he was offered a relevant role in the soap opera Los Colby, but he rejected it.

Since 1990

In 1993 he played a leading role in Emir Kusturica’s praised film The Dream of Arizona.

As a secondary actress, she has participated in a large number of films, such as Chamber Founded (1996) by James Foley, Joan of Arc (1999) by Luc Besson and Don Juan de Marco (1995), where she was part-time mythical Marlon Brando in one of his last roles. In 1997 he starred in a Spanish film: In Arms of the Mature Woman, by Manuel Lombardero.

In 1993, Faye Dunaway became involved in a judicial conflict due to the musical Sunset Boulevard by Andrew Lloyd Webber: when the play was performed in Los Angeles, she was chosen to replace Glenn Close, but the producers changed their minds announcing the end of functions when Close terminated his contract, and argued that Dunaway did not meet the vocal demands of the paper. She considered that such a statement harmed her image and started litigation. Finally it was indemnified in a private agreement and the process was filed.

In 1998 Dunaway collaborated with Angelina Jolie in the telefilm Gia, a true story about a drug addicted top model; both actresses won the Golden Globe. By the same time, the veteran actress participated with a supporting role in The Yards (The Other Side of the Crime), James Gray’s film with Mark Wahlberg, James Caan, Joaquin Phoenix and Charlize Theron.
