Actress Jane Bryan Dart Dies, Age 90

Warner Bros. actress Jane Bryan, who left films after marrying businessman Justin Dart in 1939, has died at the age of 90.

Justin and Jane Dart were among the closest friends of Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

Bryan's films included MARKED WOMAN (1937), KID GALAHAD (1937), A SLIGHT CASE OF MURDER (1938), THE SISTERS (1938), EACH DAWN I DIE (1939), and THE OLD MAID (1939).

Bryan worked with virtually all of the Warner Bros. greats, including Davis, Bogart, Cagney, Robinson, Flynn, Raft, and of course, Reagan. Bryan appeared with Reagan and his first wife, Jane Wyman, in BROTHER RAT (1938) and her last film, BROTHER RAT AND A BABY (1940).
