I was just watching Young Bess (1953), in which Deborah Kerr plays Catherine Parr, last night (recorded off TCM). Then I was saddened this morning to read that she died. She was a fine actress and singer (The King and I, An Affair to Remember, etc.)

Actually she was dubbed in both those films by Marni Nixon. Still, she was an excellent actress; she will definitely be missed.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

thanks Matthew. After I wrote "singer" I paused because something told me she may have been dubbed. But I didn't have a chance to check it out yet. Oh well, a fine actress and lip-syncher I guess.

Another sad day for classic movie lovers.

I truly forgot how many great movies she made. I have loved every one that I have seen, and I still have several to see. It's time to move "The King & I" up the list a bit. ....and where is "The Hucksters" on DVD?

I've seen:
From Here to Eternity
An Affair to Remember
Heaven Knows Mr. Allison
Night of the Iguana
Black Narcissus

Wow! What a career!

I had seen her before in a couple pictures, but she really made a big impression on me in The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, where she plays 3 separate women.

A great actress, who appeared in so many fine films. May she R.I.P.

Sad news indeed. Surely 'The Innocents' should be added to the above list - one of her greatest roles IMHO.

Man, that's a "kick to the stomach"!

My family and I just recently viewed the excellent DVD presentation of "The King and I". Dubbed or not, she did a terrific job in that role!

I'll "Whistle a Happy Tune" in her honor!
