Eleanor Parker was best known for her character Baroness Elsa von Schrader in the classic The Sound of Music. She died due to complications from pneumonia on Monday (December 9) in Palm Springs, California. The star, who was nominated for three Oscars between 1951 and 1956, was described as “one of the most beautiful ladies I have ever known, both as a person and as a beauty” by Christopher Plummer, her co-star. He added, “I hardly believe the sad news, for I was sure she was enchanted and would live forever.” She was also famous for playing roles in films such as Scaramouche, Valley of the Kings, The Naked Jungle and the prison drama Caged, for which she earned her first Oscar nomination for Best Actress. More recently, she graced shows such as Murder, She Wrote and The Love Boat. Although she was married four times, she was last married to Raymond Hirsch in 1966. He died in 2001. She also has two daughters and two sons. Click below to watch a tribute to the actress and her career.
