Eleanor Jean Parker was featured in some 80 movies and television series nominated three time for an Oscar, and an actress of notable versatility, as she was known as Woman of a Thousand Faces. The younger generations may recognize her as the scheming baroness in the beloved musical, The Sound of Music passed away on Monday from complications from pneumonia. When I was a wee little queen and watched the Sound of Music, I could almost wet myself waiting in anticipation for the Baroness to arrive, to bring some drama and glamour to a mousey governess, and drab family. Another great gone.
