While Hollywood remembers her for so many classic appearances, what first comes to my mind is the part she played in Pete’s Dragon. That was one of the first movies I ever saw in a theatre. I loved it. It was one of the films that inspired my obsession with the big screen experience. Man, she was a nasty piece of work in that movie.
