Deborah Kerr, 1921-2007

Deborah Kerr passed away on Tuesday, October 16, 2007. She was 86 years old.

Most people will probably remember Kerr from her roles in From Here to Eternity, An Affair to Remember, and The King and I. However, the role I’ll always remember her for is Miss Giddens, the tormented governess in The Innocents (my favorite horror film of all time).

GreenCine Daily has a nice collection of articles, reflections, and obituaries, including this nice reflection on her work in The Innocents.
