Actress. She appeared in 46 films, including "Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer," "Blue Skies," "Daisy Kenyon," "Forever Amber," "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir," and the Jimmy Stewart classic "Harvey." She retired from show business in 1952 to spend time with her husband, comedy star Jack Oakie. After her husband's death in 1978, Victoria Horne established a lecture series in his name at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and wrote four books about their life together. Among them was Jack Oakie's Oakridge, about their estate, the honeymoon home of actors Robert Taylor and Barbara Stanwyck. Victoria Oakie later donated the property to the University of Southern California.
