Susan Hayward starred in nineteen feature films in the 1950s. Of the first thirteen, twelve were made for Twentieth
Century Fox between 1950 and 1955. Taken as a whole, these films were financially very successful and confirmed Hayward as a prominent star. Joseph Schenck, the then senior executive of Twentieth Century Fox, said of Hayward ‘On the basis or our investment alone, Susan Hayward is our most valuable player. We’ve tied up nearly one quarter of our studio budget on her’ (Linet 1981: 131). For her 1950s work she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar three times. At the end of the decade in 1960, her celebrity was recorded by a place on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, at the same time as Judy Garland and Joan Bennett.
