Field, a lifetime dog lover, was snapped behind the scenes playing with her canine costar.
Once again, Field was snapped off the set playing with a pooch (who looks awfully like Humphrey Bogart's dog, Zero.) If you know how I adore dogs, then you know that this loving quality in Fields only adds to my affection for her.
She and her second husband divorced in 1967 and the year after, she married artist Raymond Olivere, who she would remain with the rest of her life.
When Betty Field died in 1973 at only age sixty, we were robbed of the chance to see a truly fine and devoted character actress ply her craft into the old age she had already delved into somewhat through makeup. Countless great little old lady roles would have been enhanced by her particular brand of sass and spunk. Thankfully, her work has been captured on film in plenty of prior projects so that she can be enjoyed by fans, some of whom weren't even born when she passed away.
