Rembering Anne Francis - Sept 16th, 1930 - Jan. 2nd, 2011

I'm very sad to hear of the passing of Anne Francis. She was a fine actress and a quite a unique and striking beauty. She appeared in 3 of what I consider to be the best films of the 1950's - "Forbidden Planet", "Blackboard Jungle" and John Sturges' tension-filled masterpiece "Bad Day at Black Rock". She also gave a first-rate performance as a manequinn come to life in the classic Twilight Zone episode "After Hours", one that always gave me big time chills as a kid and still does! Here's to you Anne!

I love that Twilight Zone episode as well. It's my favorite from the first season, because it scared the crap out of me!

Aw, I remember hearing about this. Forbidden Planet was on TCM shortly before her passing, too. RIP.
