News broke just recently that actress Patricia Medina died. The famous 1950s Hollywood actress was pronounced dead this past Saturday in Los Angeles, according to the latest reports.
As reported in her recent LA Times obituary, Medina, the British-born actress, had been in declining health recently. She passed away on Saturday at the Barlow Respiratory Hospital. Medina was the widow of actor Joseph Cotten, and the star of several films in the 50s including Orson Welles's Mr. Arkadin.
Other movie roles that Patricia Medina starred in included those for Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion, Plunder of the Sun, Botany Bay, and Phantom of the Rue Morgue. She made her Broadway debut in 1962 in the show Calcutta Risk, which also starred her husband at the time, Joseph Cotten. Cotten passed away in 1994.
Medina has left behind a legacy of classic roles from her acting resume over the years, which will certainly have her remembered well into the future. She also has a 1998 autobiography (pictured) called "Laid Back in Hollywood," which will give readers insight into her career and life.
Deepest condolences are expressed to all family, friends, and fans of the late Patricia Medina.
