Susannah York dies

British actress Susannah York has passed away. She died from advanced bone marrow cancer just six days after her 72nd birthday.

Her career high came in 1969 with the critically acclaimed film "They Shoot Horses, Don't They", for which she was nominated for an Oscar as Best Supporting Actress. Other movies she made her mark in were "Tom Jones", "The Battle of Britain", and of course many of us will always remember her as Kal-El's mother, Lara, in "Superman, The Movie".

While searching for photos to include in this post I was struck by how, even into her 70s, she still possessed that almost pixie-like, round faced beauty she held throughout her life. Click on the image for more late 60s / early 70s photos of Susannah.
