    HER Younger brother, actor James Anderson, died at the age of 48. His most notable role was that of redneck Bob Ewell in "To Kill A Mockingbird"....Mary Anderson was a beautiful lady and a credit to her profession.

    According to IMDB, her last role was an uncredited part in "Cheech and Chong's Next Movie" ! WTF is up there, never knew 'Maybelle Merriweather' was a Cheech & Chong fan.
    Her previous role was fifteen years earlier, so I have no idea what reason(s) she had for taking that final role. She was reunited with GWTW costars at least twice .... with Olivia De Havilland in "To Each His Own" and with Harry Davenport and Barbara O'Neil in "All This and Heaven Too". In ATAHT she played a schoolgirl student (she was about age 22 !) of Bette Davis'. Never saw her or read about her being interviewed about her career or about GWTW in particular.

    I agree. She had a more classical beauty than Vivien Leigh.
    Do not knock on Death's door. Ring the bell and run. He hates that.

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16
