TCM always does a beautiful job with this tribute, and I have to say this one left me even more teary than usual. So many special favorites passed on this year; the video begins with beloved actress Joan Leslie and concludes with another, Maureen O'Hara; and in the middle there's Coleen Gray. I was so fortunate to see two of those ladies in person and speak at length with Coleen.
Other names which left me particularly misty-eyed in this year's video were Setsuko Hara, Rod Taylor, Louis Jourdan, Lizabeth Scott, Dean Jones, and Kevin Corcoran.
I do wish TCM had included Martin Milner and hope perhaps it's an oversight they'll correct. Although he may have been best known for his TV series, he was in a great many films from a young age, with his finest appearance perhaps having been in the classic SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS (1957).
And this evening comes word that actress Marjorie Lord has left us at the age of 97. Another who was best known for her TV work, Lord also acted in films opposite James Cagney, Tim Holt, and more. She was at one time married to actor John Archer and was the mother of actress Anne Archer. I was fortunate to see her interviewed at UCLA in 2013.
