Forbidden Planet's Anne Francis Dies at 80
Her first role was in The Blackboard Jungle (1955, the year I was born), but she is best known for her role as Altaira, the daughter of the mad scientist in Forbidden Planet. She also had the distinction of being one of the first, if not the first, female detective on television in the Honey West tv series.
Farewell, Anne Francis. We'll miss you. :(
