Patricia Smith


Born - 20 February 1930, New Haven, Connecticut, USA
Died - 2 January 2011

Briefly touted as an unglamorous 'new star' by Hollywood in the late 1950s, this light-haired, passive-looking actress was scarcely out of repertory when she landed a featured role opposite Henry Fonda in a Broadway play. She was a refreshing new face in The Bachelor Party (1957) but, after playing opposite James Stewart in The Spirit of St Louis (1957), she was mostly seen on stage and TV. Later films included The Girl Who Knew Too Much (1969), Save the Tiger (1973), Ace Eli and Rodger of the Skies (1973), I Love You...Goodbye (1974), then many TV movies before Malibu Summer (1993) and Mad City (1997), her last. Married for many years to actor John Lasell, she died from heart failure after a long battle with diabetes.
