Ann Sheridan was born on Feb 21, 1915 in USA. Ann Sheridan's big-screen debut came with Search for Beauty directed by Erle C. Kenton in 1934. Ann Sheridan is known for Pistols 'n' Petticoats directed by Ezra Stone, Ann Sheridan stars as Henrietta Hanks and Ruth McDevitt as Grandma Effie Hanks. The most recent award Ann Sheridan achieved is Walk of Fame. The upcoming new tvshow Ann Sheridan plays is Pistols 'n' Petticoats - Season 1 which will be released on Sep 17, 1966.

Ann Sheridan won the "Search for Beauty" contest which carried with it a Paramount screen test. Signed to a contract at 18, she was put into a number of small roles under her real name of Clara Lou Sheridan. As she got better, her name was changed to Ann. In 1936, after two dozen films, she went to Warner Brothers, which billed her as the "Oomph Girl," a name she despised -- although she certainly looked the part. She was allowed to mature into a leading star who could be the girl next door or the tough-as-nails dame. She was in a lot of comedies and a number of forgettable movies, but the public liked her, and her career flourished. She also gave great performances such as the singer in Torrid Zone (1940) and the waitress in Une femme dangereuse (1940). In 1948, she was dropped by Warner Bros., but came back in Howard Hawks' comedy Allez coucher ailleurs ! (1949) with Cary Grant. She continued to make films into the 1950s but retired before the end of the decade. She starred in the soap opera Un autre monde (1964) and the western series Pistols 'n' Petticoats (1966). Unfortunately, just as her career was reviving with this series, she died of cancer.
