Best known as a television actress who guest starred on shows ranging from The Twilight Zone to Wagon Train to Murder She Wrote, American supporting actress Susan Oliver also worked on-stage and in the occasional feature film. Before making her movie debut in The Green Eyed Blonde in 1957, Oliver studied drama at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theater. She joined the cast of Peyton Place as Ann Colby Howard in 1966, while continuing her film career. Oliver's film career was sporadic after 1970; however, she was active in the American Film Institute's workshop for women. In addition, Oliver directed short films and a few episodes of television series. In her spare time, Oliver was a talented airplane pilot and in 1966, she survived a small plane crash. Oliver won the 1970 Powder Puff Derby air race and was then named Pilot of the Year. Later, she attempted to become the first woman to single-handedly fly a single-engine plane from New York to Moscow, but was thwarted in Denmark when the Soviet government denied her permission to enter their air space. In 1983, Oliver published her memoirs, Odyssey. She died of cancer in 1990.
