Eleanor Parker – My Latest Dead Woman Crush


Eleanor Jean Parker (June 26, 1922 – December 9, 2013) was an American actress who appeared in some 80 movies and television series.[1] An actress of notable versatility, she was called Woman of a Thousand Faces by Doug McClelland, author of a biography of Parker by the same title.


I wasn’t familiar with the beauty with the lovely voice, but I recently saw in her in Scaramouche and Valley of the Kings on TCM and fell quickly under her spell. Although both movies are just passable, she is enough on her own to keep me watching.

Here she is with Janet Leigh, another favorite, though Parker easy eclipses her here.
