An expert at playing disturbed modern women, Knight trained at the Pasadena Playhouse before making her film debut in Five Gates to Hell (1959). Still a relative newcomer to film, she astounded viewers with her accomplished performances in The Dark at the Top of the Stairs (1960) and Sweet Bird of Youth (1962), both of which earned her Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominations. She turned her attentions to Broadway in the mid 1960s, then moved to Britain for several years, appearing in films only sporadically, as in Juggernaut (1974) and Endless Love (1981). Knight was memorable in The Group (1966), Petulia (1968), and especially The Rain People (1969), a probing proto-feminist road film written and directed by a young Francis Ford Coppola. Other credits include Beyond the Poseidon Adventure (1979) and The Sender (1982). She appeared in a 1958 Western TV series, "Buckskin," and has become very active in television in recent years, winning a 1988 Emmy for her recurring role as Mel Harris' mother on "thirtysomething."
