RIP and kudos to that...
I always thought she didn't get the recognition she deserved. Her acting in Texas Chain Saw was just amazing. One of the best performances by an actress I've seen to this day. Such an under appreciated talent. Sleep well and sound.
I agree with everyone else - she gave such an amazing and underappreciated performance in TCM. I had the pleasure to interact with her a couple times - such a sweetheart too!
RIP Marilyn - we will miss you!
One of the great screamers, that's for sure. RIP.
Thanks. She was 90, so it's a little less tragic. Plus, she passed near Houston so I hope that she and Marilyn at least shook hands.
Her performance in TCM is, for me, one of the reasons that it resonated with me as a teen. Her fear and panic was so real that it has always been impossible for me to become detached. It's rare for a "cheap" horror film to have that kind of emotional impact.
Very sad news. I had the pleasure of meeting her at Rock & Shock a few years back and it was kind of sad how all these new "stars" of modern movies had throngs of people talking to them while Marilyn sat at her table all alone. I talked to her for quite a while and she shared some funny memories about working with William Finley. As others have mentioned, she really was a sweetheart - very humble and down to earth unlike some of the newcomers who land a role in one forgettable movie and think they're superstars.
Besides her unfortunate passing, I'm actually pleased that her passing didn't go unnoticed in the medias.
Yes, it showed up on the front pages of a TON of websites (I'm talking mainstream media, not horror sites). It made me very happy as well. She deserved that.
