Eleanor Parker- 26th June 1922- 9th December 2013

Eleanor Parker was a beautiful and versatile actress. That rare high combo of beauty and talent perhaps only seen before in Vivien Leigh. Too bad she never became a bigger star!

Parker showed impressive range, which was clearly her intention. She once said, “When I am spotted somewhere it means that my characterizations haven’t covered up Eleanor Parker the person. I prefer it the other way around.”
