Cancer has claimed the life of Anne Francis, sexy star of more than 30 movies, including the 1956 sci fi classic "Forbidden Planet."

The actress, who underwent surgery and chemotherapy after being diagnosed with lung cancer in 2007, died of complications of pancreatic cancer at a Santa Barbara retirement home. She was 80.

In addition to her film work, Francis played a mannequin who comes to life in an episode of the TV series "The Twilight Zone" and had the title role in the 1960s series "Honey West," in which she played a private detective with a pet ocelot.

Actually Richard Anderson ("Quinn") is still around. I met him at Big Apple Comic Con last October. And Warren Stevens ("Doc Ostrow") is still here too.

Also Earl Holliman!

Darn I should have fact checked that copy, but I was so sad to read it I did not.

I removed it.

Odd coincidence to me that Leslie Nielsen and her, both from Forbidden Planet, should pass away within months of each other

I fear it is the old idea of threes, as they go in threes.
