Novak chose ranching over typecasting
LOS ANGELES -- Actress Kim Novak, the blonde bombshell who was a top box office draw in the 1950s, says she stopped acting because she was disillusioned by Hollywood typecasting. She is the subject of a three-day retrospective by American Cinematheque starting Friday. Novak, 70, now lives on an Oregon ranch with her veterinarian husband. She worked with the industry's top directors in the 1950s and '60s, including Alfred Hitchcock ("Vertigo"), Billy Wilder ("Kiss Me, Stupid"), George Sidney ("Pal Joey") and Phil Karlson ("Five Against the House"). Novak is scheduled to attend Saturday's screening of her most popular film, "Vertigo," at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles.
