Darnell played two roles that earned her respect as an actress: Daphne de Carter in the Preston Sturges comedy Unfaithfully Yours (1948), opposite Rex Harrison, and one of the three wives in the comedy/drama A Letter to Three Wives (1949). Darnell's hard-edged performance in the latter won her the best reviews of her career. She was widely tipped to win an Academy Award nomination for this part, but, when this did not happen, her career began to wane, and her film appearances were sporadic thereafter.
Darnell died at the age of 41 on April 10, 1965, from the burns she received in a house fire in Glenview, Illinois, while staying with friends. Her 1940 film, Star Dust was playing on television the night of the fire, and Darnell fell asleep with a lit cigarette while watching it. She reportedly awoke and tried to save her friend's child in the house - the young girl had already escaped -- and instead was burned over 80 percent of her body. She died the next day.
