Lee Remick

Lee Remick made one of her last public appearances on April 29, 1991, to receive her star on the "Hollywood Walk of Fame." In the last stages of kidney cancer, her face was extremely bloated by the chemo treatments she was receiving. She died two months later on July 2nd at the age of 55.

Director Elia Kazan cast Remick as a seductive cheerleader in his 1957 film, "A Face in the Crowd," she gave highly praised performances in Martin Ritt's "Long Hot Summer" (1958), Otto Preminger's "Anatomy of a Murder" (1959) and Mr. Kazan's "Wild River" (1960). "Experiment in Terror" (1962) still photos of which start this video. Her portrait of a happily married housewife turned alcoholic in Blake Edwards's "Days of Wine and Roses" (1963) brought her an Academy Award nomination.

Montgomery Clift's career was in decline when he was considered for "Wild River." Director Elia Kazan made him promise he wouldn't drink. The actor kept his word with the support of sympathetic co-stars Jo Van Fleet and Lee Remick. While she was filming Wild River (1960) Lee Remick's husband was severely hurt in an auto accident and left the location shoot immediately. When she returned, she was given great support by co-star Montgomery Clift, who had been through a horrible car accident a few years earlier himself.
