Elenor Parker was one of my favorites and now she's gone.
Known for her role as the scheming baroness in The Sound of Music.
Sorry. Unfortunately, real actors and actresses are dying off. The current generation can’t act their way out of a paper bag
We didn't have to hear about endless and smarmy scandals or find out ever time one of them got a hang nail...
Entertainers NOW, think we need to know everything about their nasty, grubby lives... AS IF they are relevant or something.
Sheesh ... they are just former manicurists and parking valets... NOT super human and all knowing.
Don't believe me... just listen when one of them speak without a script... idiocy personified!!!!
I know I am old and have hearing loss, but I think they used to teach actors how to speak. Today I can barely understand what they are saying even when the volume is turned up.
The Sound of Music Live! did it.
I also think she gave a wonderful performance as Mildred in the little known remake of "Of Human Bondage". Bette David gets all the acclaim for that role but I thought Elenore was truer to the book version of the character.
Thank goodness for Turner Movie Classics which keeps a record of a career that might otherwise be forgotten.
Very pretty woman. I remember her from “A Hole in the Head,” where she played Frank Sinatra’s love interest.
Actors/actresses make the audience believe they are the character they are playing. They can play the hero or they can play the villian, convincingly.
Personalities have roles built around their character, because they do no know how to act. They basically play the same character from program to program, movie to movie.
You’re right-I quit watching Robert DeNiro doing Robert DeNiro, way back.
He’s always the same smart mouth and cocky jerk... which for Mean Streets was fine...
At some point, you have to start ‘acting’ and stop being yourself.
Home from the Hill is one of my top 10 favorites.
You sound really sad, I know how that can be when someone you really like, even if you don’t know them personally, passes away.
I felt very bereft when John Candy died, he always seemed to be such a sweet fellow.
RIP Eleanor & John.
