Interesting indeed. I don't recognize any of her work or who she is, but it is a good read... I must find out more about her.
By my troth, I care not; a man can die but once; we owe God a death.... He that dies this year is quit for the next.
Her private life was incredibly sad. This links to a blog by one of her sons - http://www.susannafosterchronicles.com/
I see it hasn't been updated since 2012, but it's heartbreaking nonetheless.
How sad that what's considered her most famous role was in that God-Awful remake of the Phantom of the Opera. Claude Rains was great for the role because of his impressive voice and acting ability, but IMO the movie was f*cked-up because there was too little Phantom and too much Opera. There was too much of a contrast between the horror (the Phantom) and the non-romantic love triangle involving the singer and her two suitors. How sad that in spite of a long musical career (not to mention her jobs outside of show business) she ended up living in her car.
