It’s one of the sad facts that the pool of talented people who worked with Hitchcock dwindles each year and I’d just to take a moment to remember those who passed away during 2014:
- Mary Anderson (1918-2014) — played the role of Alice MacKenzie in Lifeboat (1944)
- Miliza Milo (1923-2014) — played the role of Saleswoman in Vertigo (1958)
- Billie Whitelaw (1932-2014) — played the role of Hetty Porter in Frenzy (1972)
A number of actors who appeared in Hitchcock’s television series also passed away:
- Polly Bergen (1930-2014)
- Mary Grace Canfield (1926-2014)
- Martin Clark (1938-2014)
- Martha Hyer (1924-2014)
- Russell Johnson (1924-2014)
- Joan Lorring (1926-2014)
- Sarah Marshall (1933-2014) — daughter of Herbert Marshall and Edna Best
- Juanita Moore (1922-2014)
- Marian Seldes (1928-2014)
Somehow, my RSS subscription to your blog got stuck.
I fixed it now, but what’s interesting is that the last post I got before it stopped working was “Meet the Hitchcocks part 4”.
I wanted to resume reading from there, but I couldn’t find that post…
What happened to the “Meet the Hitchcock” series?
Happy 2015 to you and yours, and keep up the great work on the Hitchcock Zone!
Unfortunately I kept finding new information about Hitchcock’s family tree, so decided to remove the articles until I’ve finished the research and can add all the new information :-)Permalink
