She made a few risque films including the snake pit and another one about a single mother that escapes me. Plus she was a ride. She had a long run of films with Errol Flynn. Robin Hood was my first film I saw her in when I was about 7. She did another one with him about The Light Brigade that is fantastically silly
The Adventures of Robin Hood was a fantastic film, and she was gorgeous in it.

That is the last link to the golden age of Hollywood gone. Can’t think of anyone else who was a major star in the 1930s, still alive. Famously, she’s meant to have had a fairly terrible relationship with her sister. Two fabulous looking woman.

One of my favourites actresses - a real beauty. She was fantastic in the many films she did with Errol Flynn - starting with Captain Blood - but my favourite was the Adventures of Robin Hood.

Sad loss but 104 is a decent innings. RIP
