A Conde Naste proof stamp with Jun 6, 1947 date, and photographer's stamp on verso. Ruth Gordon Jones (October 30, 1896 August 28, 1985), better known as Ruth Gordon, was an American actress and writer. She is perhaps best known for film roles she had while already in her 70s and 80s: Minnie Castevet, Rosemary's overly solicitous neighbor in Rosemary's Baby, the eccentric Maude in Harold and Maude, and Ma Boggs, the mother of Orville Boggs, in the Clint Eastwood film Every Which Way but Loose. In addition to her acting career, Gordon wrote numerous plays, film scripts and books, most notably co-writing the screenplay for the 1949 film Adam's Rib. Gordon won an Academy Award, an Emmy and two Golden Globe awards for her acting, as well as receiving three Academy Award nominations for her writing. In September 2014, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, presented a retrospective of Horst P. Horst's work.
