Biography

A beautiful brunette starlet of the 1940s, Catherine Craig (born Feltus) retired from the screen in 1949 to devote herself to being Mrs. Robert Preston. They had met while studying at the famous Pasadena Playhouse and both were awarded contracts with Paramount shortly after their 1940 wedding. But while Preston quickly established himself as a dependable second lead and, later, a star in his own right, Craig languished in typical starlet assignments. She is perhaps best-remembered for playing one of Rita Hayworth's many sisters in the 1942 musical You Were Never Lovelier (1942) and as John Calvert's leading lady in the ersatz Falcon whodunit Appointment With Murder (1948). She should not be confused with earlier silent era Catherine Craig (aka Katherine Craig). ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
