The oldest living Oscar winner turns 100 today — Luise Rainer, who claimed consecutive Academy Awards as best actress for "The Great Ziegfeld" (1936) and "The Good Earth" (1937).
"For my second and third pictures, I won Academy Awards," she once said. "Nothing worse could have happened to me."
After her double victory, the German-born star received disappointing roles from MGM and poor reviews from film critics, so she fled Hollywood for Europe. Today, she's thought of widely as one of the best examples of the notorious Oscar Curse.
