This was the first movie of a great career! (See the Movies section). With this movie she got her first Oscar nomination (See the Awards section).Angela's first husband was Richard Cromwell (Roy Radabaugh), married on September 27, 1945 in Independence (California).

She didn't know how getting there and Hurd "sent" Peter taking her. Angela married Peter Shaw (Peter Pullen) on August 12, 1949 in London (UK), St. Columbia's Church, after they won approval from the Church of Scotland (both Angela and Peter was divorced). Peter Pullen was born on June 24, 1918 in London (UK).Their first son, Anthony Peter Shaw, was born on January 7, 1952 in their home in Encino (San Fernando Valley).One year later, on April 26, 1953, at Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital, they had a daughter, Deirdre Angela Shaw.In the 1950s, Peter won custody of his son, David, and then he and Angela agreed that the time had come to bring over the ten-year-old boy. David was born in 1944, while Peter was still married with Mercia Squires, a model he knew in London.Source: angelalansbury.net
