A tribute to one of the greatest stars of all time.
17 March 2001 | by (cincinnati, ohio) – See all my reviews

Today is a day of much sadness for me. I read in the newspaper early this morning that Ann Sothern, the beautiful and talented star of the classic TV shows "Private Secretary" and "The Ann Sothern Show", has died.

Ms. Sothern died of heart failure late Thursday at her home in Ketchum, Idaho. She was 92.

One of television's first and greatest comedians, Ms. Sothern also proved to be an equally gifted dramatic actress in such films as "Cry Havoc", "A Letter To Three Wives", and "Shadow on the Wall".

She received a much deserved Academy Award nomination for her delightful performance as the spirited New England friend and neighbor of Bette Davis and Lillian Gish in the acclaimed film "The Whales of August".

I will forever think of Ann Sothern as an exceptionally gifted actress who always delivered superb performances. She is a very beautiful and special woman who has brought so much happiness and enjoyment into my life. I will always love her and always be grateful to her.
