I think she was one of the most underrated talents ever. She couls ding, act, do it all. She is hard to pigeon hole into one genre because of her versatility.
She was an Oscar nominee for Pillow Talk, her first of three films with Rock Hudson. She appeared with Cagney in Love Me Or Leave Me and stole ths show, and opposite James Stewart in a great Hitchco*k drama, The Man Who Knew Too Much. And she did terrific musicals such as Calamity Jane and Pajama Game.
She recently celebrated her 84th birthday and is an animal advocate in CA. Just love her!
