'From Here to Eternity' actress Deborah Kerr dies

Quote:
LONDON, England (AP) -- Deborah Kerr, who shared one of Hollywood's most famous kisses and made her mark with such roles as the correct widow in "The King and I" and the unhappy officer's wife in "From Here to Eternity," has died. She was 86.


Deborah Kerr was nominated for six Oscars, including one
for "From Here to Eternity."


Kerr, who suffered from Parkinson's disease, died Tuesday in Suffolk in eastern England, her agent, Anne Hutton, said Thursday.

For many she will be remembered best for her kiss with Burt Lancaster as waves crashed over them on a Hawaiian beach in the wartime drama "From Here to Eternity."

Kerr's roles as forceful, sometimes frustrated women pushed the limits of Hollywood's treatment of sex on the screen during the censor-bound 1950s.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated Kerr a six times for best actress, but never gave her an Academy Award until it presented an honorary Oscar in 1994 for her distinguished career as an "artist of impeccable grace and beauty, a dedicated actress whose motion picture career has always stood for perfection, discipline and elegance."

She had the reputation of a "no problem" actress.

"I have never had a fight with any director, good or bad," she said toward the end of her career. "There is a way around everything if you are smart enough."

Kerr (pronounced CARR) was the only daughter of Arthur Kerr-Trimmer, a civil engineer and architect who died when she was 14.

It is a sad day. She had style and grace and she never took a stitch of clothes off.

Well, maybe half a stitch.

Quite racy for 1951.

Great actress. She will be missed.
As for the lack of nudity in her films-Yes that scene on the beach is one of the sexiest scenes in movies.
Sexy isn't always full nudity. Sometimes just the hint of skin will be far more tantalizing.
As far as sexy women in film, who was the lady in jail (first woman in the gas chamber) who ran around in the slip? Guys went crazy over her! I think the movie was "I'll Cry Tomorrow" ??
