Good-bye Anne Francis
I really thought this would get more press that it has. Lovely Anne Francis passed at the age of 80. While she is not as notable as some the other leading stars of Forbidden Planet, she had a very impressive career. Obviously, for many, she is the beautiful temptress from that SciFi classic. She had roles in some notable movies of her time (such as Bad Day at Black Rock and Blackboard Jungle). I could probably go on but why? If you want, here is her obituary. I have seen Forbidden Planet about 30 times and I always adored her in it.
Sleep well Anne.
