Actress Susan Peters in Santa Monica, c. 1942. (photographer unknown)

I didn’t know who the woman in this photograph was until a re-tumblr gave the name.  

Her biography paints a tragic history.  Promising young film career, then bizarrely shot / paralyzed in a hunting accident.  

Her mother died while Susan was rehabilitating, and her efforts to find acting roles as a disabled person were dismal afterwards.  

She and her husband separated.  

After a series of unsatisfactory small roles and a failed engagement, Susan Peters slipped into depression and died, alone, from anorexia complications at the age of 31.
