"In the 50s, she was Feathers, the shady lady in the classic John Wayne western Rio Bravo," Stephen Whitty wrote in the Star-Ledger last year. "In the 60s, she was Frank Sinatra's wife in Ocean's 11 (and the gun moll in a couple of hard-boiled Lee Marvin classics). In the 70s, she broke the erotic age barrier as a lusty high school teacher in Pretty Maids All in a Row, a hot bank robber in Big Bad Mama and a sexy cop on TV's Police Woman. In the 80s, she was a daring — and doomed — object of desire in Brian De Palma's classic Dressed to Kill. And, along the way, she cut a glamorous swath as Burt Bacharach's wife (and — they say — a favorite Sinatra squeeze and JFK fling). And she established a reputation for slightly naughty plain speaking — although you won't find her going the kiss-and-tell route."
