Character actress Deering (1918-1986) was a Broadway and film actress active in the 50's and 60's. In CAGED (1950) she played the tragic young nurse jailed for unknowingly getting involved in a doctor's "dirty business" (Denied parole, she hangs herself). Here she is 14 years later (in one of her last filmed appearances) as a mental patient 'looking after' young Carol Lynley. She passed away at 67.
As a footnote, Olive was the first wife of director Leo Penn (which makes her Sean Penn's stepmother once removed?). She was also a sister-in-law to the great actress Kim Stanley who was married to Olive's brother, actor Arthur Ryder. Small world...isn't it?
