Susan Gordon 1949 – 2011

I was very saddened to learn of the death on Sunday of Susan Gordon. She was the daughter of director Bert I. Gordon and co-starred in several of his films, including The Boy and the Pirates (1960). Here she is from that film, doing her best to stay clear of Timothy’s destructive pirate rampage.

I enjoyed her especially in Tormented (1960). She had a sweet, pixie-like quality that was very appealing. Cancer claimed her at the age of sixty-two. Rest well, Susan.
