Superb job here! I've watched many movies with her in them, and I love all of them. What angered me when she died is that the stupid media here barely mentioned her and her death.

It was the same thing like Lizabeth Scott died. She was called the "Queen of film noir", and she starred in 22 film noir movies. When she did, it was barely mentioned in the media, and she was not mentioned when the Oscars had their memoriam part this year.

I wish people would wake up and realize how much talent actors and actresses from that era have/had.

I never have seen her movies yet... They never mentioned her much there? That's a shame!

I've never heard of Lizabeth Scott, what era was she famous in? Was she like Lauren Bacall, more well known in the 1940's and 1950's?

I think it's a real shame how many of the people from the older eras are forgotten. So many were so talented, with their acting, singing, dancing, all of that! They had incredible skills for what they did. Now it just seems like people do one thing and that's that..

Her death was barely mentioned in some online articles. 

Not too long ago, I saw a movie starring her and Humphrey Bogart. It's called Dead Reckoning, and it was made in 1947. Most of her movies were made in the 1940's, and she was in a few in the 1950's. She also made some appearances on the radio, and on some t.v. shows. Here's the link to the Wikipedia page about her:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lizabeth…

It is a real shame. A lot of people with real talent from that era die, and it's like almost no one cars. In January, Curtis Lee died. He made one of the most well known upbeat songs of the Doo-Wop era (Pretty Little Angel Eyes), and not one media outlet here where I live mentioned his death.

Yup. People back then, especially to star in a movie, really had to know how to act, dance, and sing. Plus, a lot of them did other things. For example, Jimmy Stewart served in the U.S. Army Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force. He was a bomber pilot during World War Two in the Pacific, and he eventually rose up to the rank of Brigadier General.

Now you have these 'artists' out there that have no talent, or they barely have talent in one field. Yet, they are a lot more popular than people from the past.
