Eleanor Parker born June 26, 1922 in Cedarville, Ohio and was a very versatile actress. You hear that said of a lot of actresses but Parker played opposite Kirk Douglas in "Detective Story" and opposite Frank Sinatra in "The Man with the Golden Arm." She was nominated 3 times for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her roles. She was probably best remembered in the Sound of Music as the Baroness. While I wanted Von Trapp to marry Maria, I was really envious of the Baroness' suit!
Parker died in Palm Springs in 2013.
