Wyman's Ways Not To Die 100 Times

Every year on this here day that marks the birth of that devil in banged form Jane Wyman I "celebrate" with this gif of her being hit by a car in Douglas Sirk's glorious ode to making Jane Wyman Suffer called Magnificent Obsession. But since this year here of 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of her accursed birth we really need to pound the point home to keep her soul-gnawing goblin spectre from slipping out from its eternal netherworld prison, and so we're going to offer as a humble sacrifice this gif... 100 times. It's the least we could do. Hit the jump to break your computers in the name of all that's unholy in mid-century modern actressing...

We banish thee, Unholy Wyman!

While that was delightful and I know of your great disdain for her perhaps a peek at her earlier work where she is quite different from her later banged soberness would diminish your loathing a trifle. She could play the sassy ditzy blonde quite well.

Though some performers just aren't for everyone. For instance I have tried with Jennifer Jones but just can't. She's endlessly arch and wooden.
