20th January, 1926 - 8th August, 2010
Happy birthday to this wonderful woman whom we had the sad misfortune of losing last year. Despite not having seen all that many of her films, she is without a doubt one of my favourite actresses - and one of my favourite people.
If you've never seen any of her films, I suggest you watch The Fountainhead (1949) (with Gary Cooper) and Hud (1963) (with Paul Newman and Melvyn Douglas). You will not be disappointed!
