Actress Eleanor Parker has died, aged 91.
The American star - best known for playing Baroness Elsa von Schrader in The Sound of Music - passed away on Monday (December 9) due to complications from pneumonia in Palm Springs, California.
Parker was nominated for three Oscars in 1951, 1952 and 1956.
Co-star Christopher Plummer described her as "one of the most beautiful ladies I have ever known - both as a person and as a beauty".
"I hardly believe the sad news, for I was sure she was enchanted and would live forever," he said.
