Deborah Kerr Is Dead At 86

Thu Oct 18, 2007 11:49 pm

Deborah Kerr, a versatile actress who long projected the quintessential image of the proper, tea-sipping Englishwoman but who was also indelible in one of the most sexually provocative scenes of the 1950’s, with Burt Lancaster in “From Here to Eternity,” died on Tuesday in Suffolk, England. She was 86.

Yes, a lovely lady to the end, and it's surprising when you add up how many really good films she appeared in. RIP.

Only thing is, very definitely a Scottish lady, not an English one!

Correct - she was born in Helensburgh, where my grandparents on my dad's side lived in their later years. However, I think Dtwclipper's point is still valid.  Smile

Well, she certainly wouldn't have practiced that in her home town - the beach there is very pebbly - ouch!  eyepopping

Ummm... I am part of GenX (30-somethings) and I know who she is by the movie "Sleepless In Seattle." That was my motivation to watch "An Affair To Remember."
