Deborah Kerr Has Passed Away

I was saddened to hear that — in addition to Joey Bishop’s passing — veteran screen actress Deborah Kerr has also died. Kerr was a big movie star in the ’50s and ’60s and was nominated for six Academy Awards (although the only one she ever received was an honorary one in 1994).

Deborah Kerr starred in two films that are on my list of favorite movies: The King and I and From Here to Eternity. My wife also counts An Affair to Remember as one of her favorites.

Kerr, who had suffered from Parkinson’s disease, passed away on Tuesday in Suffolk, England. She was eighty-six years old.
