Her other film credits include the 1963 musical “Bye Bye Birdie” opposite Ann-Margret and Dick Van Dyke, “Johnny Dangerously,” “Cocoon,” “The Money Pit” and “Addicted to Love.” In television, she earned an Emmy for “Among the Paths to Eden” in 1967. She was nominated for “Queen of the Stardust Ballroom” in 1975; “The Gathering” in 1977; and “Miss Rose White” in 1992. After moving to the Berkshires, Stapleton was a regular at the Candlelight Inn, a favorite gathering spot for actors that has since closed, said Elizabeth Aspenlieder, an actress with the Lenox-based Shakespeare & Co. acting group. SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Maureen Stapleton, an Oscar-winning character actress whose subtle vulnerability and down-to-earth toughness earned her dramatic and comedic roles on stage, screen and television, died Monday. She was 80. The longtime smoker died from chronic pulmonary disease in the Berkshire hills town of Lenox, Mass., where she had been living, said her son, Daniel Allentuck. Stapleton, whose unremarkable, matronly appearance belied her star personality and talent, won an Academy Award in 1981 for her supporting role as anarchist-writer Emma Goldman in Warren Beatty’s “Reds,” about a left-wing American journalist who journeys to Russia to cover the Bolshevik Revolution. To prepare for the role, Stapleton said she tried reading Goldman’s autobiography, but soon chucked it out of boredom. “Maureen would be sitting at the bar, ferociously playing charades,” said Aspenlieder, who remembered Stapleton as a fun-loving eccentric who would often be seen wearing a housedress and pair of furry boots. “She was always warm and inviting,” Aspenlieder said. At age 24, Stapleton became a success as Serafina Delle Rose in Tennessee Williams’ Broadway hit “The Rose Tattoo,” and won a Tony Award. She appeared in numerous other stage productions, including Lillian Hellman’s “Toys in the Attic” and Neil Simon’s “The Gingerbread Lady,” for which she won her second Tony in 1971. She starred opposite Laurence Olivier in Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” Stapleton’s friendship with Williams was well-known and he wrote three plays for her, but she never appeared in any of them. Along the way, she led a chaotic personal life, which her autobiography candidly described as including two failed marriages, numerous affairs, years of alcohol abuse and erratic parenting for her two children. She often said auditioning was hard for her, but that it was just a part of acting, a job “that pays.” Beside Allentuck, Stapleton is survived by a daughter, Katharine Bambery of Lenox, and a brother, Jack Stapleton, of Troy, N.Y. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
