Biography

Onetime model Susan Shaw was groomed for movie stardom by the British Rank Organisation. Susan was seen to good advantage in such crowd-pleasers as Holiday Camp (1947), My Brother's Keeper (1948), and Quartet (1949), reaching a popularity peak around 1950. Thereafter, her film career slowly dwindled into decorative parts in lower-case productions. It is an apt comment on the vagaries of fate to note that Shaw is now best known for her worst movie, Fire Maidens From Outer Space (1955). Married to actor Albert Lieven from 1949 through 1953, her second of three husbands was actor Bonar Colleano; their son, also an actor, was Mark Colleano. Susan Shaw's credits should not be confused with those of the same-named Hollywood starlet of the 1970s.
