Anne Francis Has Died

Sad news.  One of the amazing actresses of the Fifties, Anne Francis, has died.  Her key films include Bad Day At Black Rock and Blackboard Jungle (both 1955), and of course Forbidden Planet, one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time, and still the most canonical, with its marriage of Freud and Prospero.  In the Sixties she entered a whirlwind of TV guest appearances in all the great shows, Dr. Kildare, Mission:Impossible, The Invaders, Columbo, Cannon, Banacek, - but no Star Trek, sadly.
