(1970), Taking Off (1971), Ace (1976), Moving (1988), Far Out Man (1990), Calendar Girl (1993), Angie (1994), Stargate (1994), The 4th Tenor (2002), Love for Rent (2005), The Hard Easy (2006), Reign Over Me (2007) and the TV movie How to Be a Better American (2010). Twice married and divorced, she died from natural causes.
