About Adeline Reynolds (DeWalt)

Biography for Adeline deWalt Reynolds

She survived the death of her husband in 1905, the San Francisco earthquake in 1906 and raising four children with no money. In 1926, when she was 64 she became one of the most mature freshman ever to enter the University of California. She graduated 6 years later with her B.A. degree. In 1940 she went to Hollywood, where she began her acting career. Best known for her role in Shirley Temple's Storybook production of "Sleeping Beauty", although she is probably seen most often in "Going My Way" as Father Fitzgibbon's elderly mother and Jimmy Stewart's mother in "Come Live With Me". Her personal favorite was "The Tuttles of Tahiti" with Charles Laughton, based on a script by Iowa's James Norman Hall. Reynolds also turned to TV parts in such series as "Have Gun, Will Travel." When she died at 98, Grandma Reynolds was the oldest active member of the Screen Actors Guild.
