Julie Harris 1925 – 2013

Instead of the usual Sunday Quote of the Week, I’ve chosen to mark the passing of one of the most honored and gifted performers of the Broadway stage, films and television, Julie Harris. She passed away yesterday at the age of 87, reportedly from congestive heart failure. She and Timothy appeared in only film together, East of Eden (1955), directed by Elia Kazan. This is a great behind-the-scenes glimpse of the making of that film that I first posted about a year ago. Miss Harris is prominently seen, with Tim showing up at about the 6:34 mark.

Miss Harris leaves behind a wonderful legacy that should be studied by anyone seriously interested in the craft of acting. We wish her peaceful rest.
