Kim Stanley was best known as a stage actress, but she did appear in The Right Stuff, and she played Jessica Lange's mother in Frances.
Miss Stanley was uncredited in the most important film she worked on, To Kill A Mockingbird.
The first words you hear, her narration as the older Scout,
"Macon was a tired old town, even in 1932 when I first knew it. Somehow it was hotter then..."
And the last,
"....and Atticus...He would be in Jem's room all night. And he would be there when Jem waked up in the morning."
She died yesterday in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

She didn't appear in many films but she gave very memorable performances in the few films she did appeared in......

Her performance in "Seance on a Wet Afternoon" was awesome and award caliber. That she lost the Oscar to Andrews in "Mary Poppins" was disappointing. At least she got the New York Film Critics Award that year. Her work in "The Goddess" was also memorable, but I'll always remember her for "Seance" opposite and also outstanding Richard Attenborough. (when will that film show up on DVD?)
