    Why did Jean Arthur retire?

    When her movie contract expired in 1944, Arthur, who had a chronic case of camera jitters, gladly retired from film. She was lured back to Hollywood to star, with Marlene Dietrich, in a comedy of postwar Berlin, Foreign Affair (1948), and in the western classic Shane (1953).

    Jean Arthur was an American actress and a major film star of the 1930s and 1940s. Arthur had feature roles in three Frank Capra films: Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, You Can’t Take It with You, and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, films that championed the “everyday heroine”. Arthur was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in 1944 for her performance in The More the Merrier . James Harvey wrote in his recounting of the era, “No one was more closely identified with the screwball comedy than Jean Arthur. So much was she part of it, so much was her star personality defined by it, that the screwball style itself seems almost unimaginable without her.” She has been called “the quintessential comedic leading lady”. Her last film performance was the memorable, and distinctly non-comedic, homesteader’s wife in George Stevens’ Shane in 1953. To the public, Arthur was known as a reclusive woman. News magazine Life observed in a 1940 article: “Next to Garbo, Jean Arthur is Hollywood’s reigning mystery woman.” As well as recoiling from interviews, she avoided photographers and refused to become a part of any kind of publicity.
