OK

One of the greatest actresses of all time, Julie Harris, died over the weekend.


Two of her best roles were as Abra, the sensitive girl torn between the two Trask brothers in John Steinbeck’s “East of Eden”, and Frankie, the self-absorbed, agonized tomboy in Carson McCullers’ “Member of the Wedding”.


More recently she was the voice of Mary Chesnut in Ken Burns’ epic 1980s PBS documentary “The Civil War”.
