Active throughout the ’60s to the ’90s, she was a film actress who famously played a kidnap victim, Velma Davis, in 1967’s Bonnie and Clyde. In 1963, she married drama and suspense director John Frankenheimer and they stayed together until his death in 2002.

Her filmography spans multiple genres and saw her appear in everything from Gunsmoke to Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone, and Are You Afraid of the Dark? in 1994. She also had an uncredited role in Frankenheimer’s 1966 film Grand Prix.

A lifetime of solid performances

In addition to a well-rounded film resume, she also was a master of the stage, appearing on Broadway three times throughout the late ’50s and early ’60s. Her stage credits include The Dark at the Top of the Stairs and 1960’s A Distant Bell and The 49th Cousin.

The majority of her film parts were smaller, with Bonnie and Clyde eclipsing most of them, and the biographical crime drama would indeed represent the highlight of her career. But each made a solid impression.

No immediate information on family members who survive the late actress is available, notes Parade.
