She fought it boldly.
Gonna put on my Forbidden Planet dvd later. We lost Leslie Nielson about a month ago too.

Am not familiar with the Honey West show, but she was a great actor so I'll be looking that up. Too bad I didn't know about that tv show before her death.

yeah i remember about Leslie Nelson.. same with that other actor that died a few days ago.. Pete Postlethwaite.. another actor who was always brilliant in anything he was in but never ever got the massive fame that some other undeserving people get. Steven Spielberg said that he was the greatest actor around after working with him in Jurassic Park 2 the Lost World.

Oh yeah, I love him as Obidiah in the Sharpe's Rifles series. He played that bady so well.

Yes, very. I heard that he was actually a very nice person in real life. That could be why he did baddies so well.
