Cranberriesfan is thinking of Amanda Blake who died in 1989.

Jane Wyman was a fine actress. I loved her in her Douglas Sirk films (Magnificent Obsession and All That Heaven Allows) and she was a lot of fun on Falcon Crest. I hated Yahoo.com's article title (which they seem to have replaced) reporting on her death: "First Wife of Ronald Reagan Dies." She was a lot more than just that.

Don't recall seeing any of her movies.
But I have listen to her many times on radio shows. SUSPENSE, The Lux Radio Theatre, Abbott & Costello, Jack Benny, Screen Guild Theatre, and Burns & Allen.
Couple of shows she guest starred with her then husband Ronald Reagan.

Lady had alot of talent.
