Never to be Forgotten: Martha Hyer 1924-2014

Martha Hyer, an actress who began her career as as self moving scenery and was later Oscar nominated for her suporting role Some Came Running starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine, died last month at the age of 89. Some actors have careers in big budget movies almost exclusively while others jump around from high budget to low budget work with little rhyme or reason. Once she got speaking roles, Ms. Hyer was often the pretty girl who was too conventional, losing the guy to Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina and Sophia Loren in Houseboat. She is remembered here for roles in genre TV and films such as the Vincent Price thriller House of 1,000 Dolls, the TV show Bewitched, Ray Harryhausen's First Men in the Moon (pictured here), Mistress of the World, Riders to the Stars and an early appearance in Abbott and Costello Go to Mars.

Best wishes to the family and friends of Martha Hyer, from a fan, she is never to be forgotten.
