Eleanor Parker (1922-2013)

I don't think I have seen that many of her films. Of course, the ubiquitous "The Sound of Music". Minnelli's "Home from the Hill". "Caged", the film that made her and for which she got her first Oscar nomination. And of course, "Scaramouche", in which she is absolutely wonderful. That red hair of hers in three-strip Technicolor is unforgetable.

Miguel, I haven't seen many of her films either, but she has a powerful role in 'The Man with the Golden Arm' which I've jut rewatched - I also like her with John Garfield in 'Pride of the Marines'.
