Susan Cabot Net Worth

Susan Cabot was bornon July 09, 1927 in  Boston, Massachusetts, United States, is Actress, Soundtrack. Susan Cabot was born in Boston and raised in a series of eight foster homes. She attended high school in Manhattan, where she took an interest in dramatics and joined the school dramatic club. Later, while trying to decide between a career in music or art, she illustrated children's books during the day and sang at Manhattan's Village Barn at night. It was at this same time that she made her film debut as an extra in Fox's New York-made Kiss of Death (1947) and worked in New York-based television. Maxwell Arnow, a casting director for Columbia Pictures, spotted Cabot at the Village Barn, and a co-starring role in that studio's B-grade South Seas drama On the Isle of Samoa (1950) resulted. While in Hollywood Cabot was also signed for the role of an Indian maiden in Universal's Tomahawk (1951) with Van Heflin. Subsequently signed to an exclusive contract by Universal, Cabot co-starred in a long string of films opposite leading men like John Lund, Tony Curtis and Audie Murphy. Inevitably, she became fed up with the succession of western and Arabian Nights roles, asked for a release from her Universal pact and accepted an offer from Harold Robbins to star in his play "A Stone for Danny Fisher" in New York. Roger Corman lured her back to Hollywood to play the lead in the melodramatic rock-'n-'roller Carnival Rock (1957) and she stayed on to star in five more films for the enterprising young producer-director. After a highly publicized 1959 fling with Jordan's King Hussein, Cabot divided her time between TV work and roles in stage plays and musicals.

Biography/Timeline

1944

She married her first husband, Martin Sacker, in 1944, and divorced him in 1951. Subsequently, Cabot was romantically linked with King Hussein of Jordan for several years. She bore her only child, a son, in 1961. In 1968, she married her second husband Michael Roman with whom she raised her son, Timothy Scott Roman, before again divorcing in 1983.

1947

She made her film debut by chance when Kiss of Death (1947) was filmed in New York, and she played a bit part. She expanded her acting work into television and was seen by a Hollywood talent scout who took her to Hollywood to work for Columbia Pictures. This brief period was not successful, and she moved to Universal Studios where she was signed to an exclusive contract. After a series of roles for which Cabot was mainly cast in B-movie westerns, she became dissatisfied and asked to be released from her contract. She returned to New York, where she resumed her stage career with a role in A Stone for Danny Fisher. She was invited to return to Hollywood and appeared in a few more films, including The Wasp Woman (1959), her final film role.

1986

In the weeks immediately prior to her death, Cabot's mental health deteriorated significantly. On December 10, 1986, Cabot's 25-year-old son, Timothy Scott Roman, beat her to death in her home in Encino, California, with a weightlifting bar. He was charged with second-degree murder.

1989

At the close of the trial, prosecutors changed the charge to voluntary manslaughter, as no evidence had been presented at trial to support premeditation (which was required for a murder conviction). Superior Court Judge Darlene E. Schempp deliberated 10 minutes, and then convicted Roman of involuntary manslaughter. Roman, who had already spent two-and-a-half years in jail, was sentenced to three years' probation on November 28, 1989.
