happy birthday, Luise Rainer - she was the first woman to win two Academy Awards (consecutively, no less). Despite the brevity of her career, she remains well-loved; she took part in a conversation with Robert Osborne at the 2010 TCM Film Festival. Happy 102nd, Luise!
Happy Birthday Luise Rainer (born 12 January 1910)
