Luise Rainer, who won two Oscars in the early days of the film industry, has died at 104.

She is one of only two actresses to win back-to-back Oscars, CNN reports. She won in 1936 for “The Great Ziegfeld” and in 1937 for “The Good Earth.”

Rainer’s daughter, Francesca Bowyer, reported the news on Twitter.

Her final film was “The Gambler” in 1997, almost 70 years after she began her career in movies.
