She did more films than just Body Snatchers. Alot of TV as well. A raven-haired beauty - like Ava Gardner and Elizabeth Taylor - but was a little too cool on screen and had no real sex appeal like other stars of the 50s.

She was gorgeous on Invasion of the Body Snatchers. She really looked striking in the crisp black and white movie. I thought I saw her out with Sinatra once, he was probably pining for Ava, whom Dana slightly resembled. The only other movie that I saw her in was Airport.

She was terrific and lovely in several movies like SINK THE BISMARCK and SHAKE HANDS WITH THE DEVIL and with Rock in SOMETHING OF VALUE, not seen that since I was a kid. She had a good career in television too - a lovely beauty but perhaps a second tier star, one of those leading ladies like Dorothy Malone, Martha Hyer, Vera Miles, Barbara Rush etc. and yes she certainly looked like Taylor. %0D %0D Always a lady too, though she plays a good dipso in IN LOVE AND WAR with Wagner, Jeff Hunter and other 20th Century Fox players.

Didn't she also have a bit part as Pilot Dean Martin's rich bitchy wife in the original AIRPORT?

When I was a kid they were always playing "Fraulein" (Her only starring movie) on TV. I loved it then but it probably doesn't hold up well. However, she was excellent in it.

Dean Martin's wife was played by Barbara Hale.

Pronounced "Donna" by the way. My friend used to mimic her dry Brit delivery in AIRPORT on the phone to Burt: "Where the HELL are you?"

She was Stella the nurse in Alfred Hitchcock's TV presentation "An Unlocked Window," about a nurse killer on the loose. It was a shock when it aired.%0D %0D The outside of the "mansion" where the story took place was The Bates Hotel.

She also played opposite Rock Hudson in "Something Of Value" about the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya. She was truly gorgeous.

"it's better to come from a broken home then live in one."
I always remember her saying that to Burt Lancaster in Airport when she announces she wants a divorce and he says they have to stay together because of the children.

Actually I was surprised she was "only" 79.
Hair, makeup and dress made women in their 20s look very mature in the 1950s.

I love this reader-submitted comment at the LA Times website:
Mark, your late dear mother was a great, gracious lady. Although we clashed on politics, she proved to be an extraordinary conversationalist and great story-teller. She loved her animals and living up on that beautiful, lonely mountain in the Upper Ojai. ("There was a bear on the roof of the barn the other day sunning himself", she once told me) She was a devout Liberal who often walked among the oaks with a pistol riding on her hip and a cat in her arms. And your Mom worked with everybody-- all the greats in the business at a time when Hollywood actors still possessed talent, guts and grace . She had plenty of all three. The world has produced few like her. May she Rest In Peace.
A great image, "pistol riding on her hip and a cat in her arms"
