Leueen MacGrath (3 July 1914 – 27 March 1992) was an English actress and playwright and the second wife of George S. Kaufman, from 1949 until their divorce in 1957.
Born in London, England, MacGrath was a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
MacGrath (pronounced mac-GRAW) began her acting career with a small role in the 1936 British film Whom the Gods Love, a biopic about Mozart and his wife Constanze. She followed this with Pygmalion and a series of B-movies, including All Hands, Meet Maxwell Archer, and The Saint's Vacation.
MacGrath made her Broadway debut in 1948 in the play Edward, My Son (1948); she reprised her role (which she also had in the play's London production) in the film adaptation the following year. In 1951 she collaborated with Kaufman and Heywood Hale Broun on the writing of The Small Hours, which closed after 20 performances. The following year she and her husband scripted the even less successful Fancy Meeting You Again (in which she starred), which ran for only 8 performances. The couple finally achieved a hit in 1955 with Silk Stockings, the Cole Porter musical for which they co-wrote the book with Abe Burrows. She returned to acting for Tiger at the Gates and The Potting Shed.
Having settled in the United States following her marriage to Kaufman, MacGrath appeared in a number of American anthology television series popular in the 1950s, including The Philco Television Playhouse, Studio One, Lux Video Theatre, The United States Steel Hour, The Alcoa Hour, and Hallmark Hall of Fame.
MacGrath married Kaufman on May 26, 1949, at Kaufman's home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She returned to the United Kingdom following her divorce from Kaufman.
She was married five times. In addition to Kaufman, her husbands were Christopher Burn, Desmond Davis, Mr. Kaufman, Stephen Goodyear, and Stephen Quinto.
On 27 March, 1992, MacGrath died of complications from a stroke at her home in London at the age of 77. She was survived by a sister and a stepdaughter.Whom the Gods Love (1936)
