RIP Deborah Kerr........

LONDON, England (AP) -- British actress Deborah Kerr, who shared one of cinema's most famous kisses with Burt Lancaster in "From Here to Eternity," has died, her agent said Thursday. She was 86.

Deborah Kerr was nominated for six Oscars, including one for "From Here to Eternity."

Kerr, who suffered from Parkinson's disease, died Tuesday in Suffolk, eastern England, he said.

Born in Scotland in 1921, Kerr began her career in regional British theaters and entertained the troops during World War II. Her first major screen role was in "Major Barbara" in 1941.

For many she will be remembered best for her clinch in the surf with Lancaster in the wartime drama "From Here to Eternity" -- regularly voted among the greatest screen kisses.

Other memorable roles included Anna Leonowens, the British governess who falls for the king of Siam in "The King and I"; with Lancaster, David Niven and Wendy Hiller in the film version of the Terrence Rattigan play "Separate Tables"; and as a nun in John Huston's "Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison."

She was nominated for six Oscars.

Kerr is survived by her husband, Peter Viertel, two daughters and three grandchildren.


This is truly one of the greatest scenes in movie history.

And her other great role....

A really classy actress.....she will be missed.

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, where she plays three separate roles, is my favorite Deborah Kerr film.

Black Narcissus, by the same writer/directors, is right up there as well.

And of course, an Affair to Remember with Cary Grant.
