I can't say that I've ever heard of her, but I'm sure I've seen some of her performances.

Does spokesperson Francesca sound like the widowed lover to anyone else?

She's probably so unknown because all her Tonys were for shows that no one has ever heard of. I only knew that she had been in East of Eden.

She was great close friends with Charles nelson Reilly.

She was a really wonderful, underrated actress. R.I.P. Miss Lilimae Clements.
(BTW, R1's joke always makes me laugh. Laurie Metcalf is also a wonderful, underrated actress.)

I saw her one woman performance as Isak Dinesen in "Lucifer's Child" around 20 years ago. She was fantastic.

R11, the article linked by OP says:
[quote]"I'm still in sort of a place of shock," said James, who appeared in daytime soap operas "All My Children" and "One Life to Live."

She had a wonderful, evocative voice.
One of her last NYC performances was at Alice Tully Hall; she performed with soprano Renee Fleming, who sang art songs based on poems, I think by Emily Dickinson. Julie recited the poetry between the songs.

Saw her in The Gin Game with Charles Durning. No one compares. Such a joy and honor to have seen her.

LOL at this thread describing her as "unknown" and "underrated". She's considered one of the greatest stage actors of the twentieth century - the only people who don't know that are people who don't know anything about stage actors of the twentieth century.

In addition to her magnificent acting skills, Ms Harris was great philanthropist. The Tupancy-Harris Foundation was a critical early supporter of HIV-AIDS advocacy and patient care programs, among many other worthy human services efforts.

I actually remember her on Match Game!

Kazan said she was an angel while working with inexperienced and difficult James Dean in East of Eden. Love You Julie.

When Lilimae Clements on Knots Landing literally shouted her son (Alec Baldwin) off a roof I got chills. She was brilliant.

I worked with Miss Harris on a play about 12 years ago. She was luminous on stage and off. And she gave me a lovely and thoughtful opening night gift.

"The Haunting" terrified me when I first saw it. Harris' fragile character adds to the tension.

Peerless. All actors should bow in reverence.

Thank God that her two legendary performances in "Member of the Wedding" and "I Am A Camera" were preserved on film! She was the first Sally Bowles and the best!

She WAS Sally Bowles in "I Am A Camera."
And Laurence Harvey was a dish. Stole a grapefruit from his backyard in Palm Springs once. He didn't mind. He was dead.

She was just on Match Game a couple of weeks ago. She and Charles Nelson Reilly are doing a play together. Wow, one minute you're here. The next you're blank.

How exactly is an actress with TEN Tony nominations and FIVE Tony wins, ELEVEN Emmy nominations with THREE wins and an Academy Award nomination deemed underrated?

We've already forgotten so much about Liz Taylor. The Haunting will live forever... not much else, sadly.

She was dreadful in some godawful play I slept through co-starring Boris Karloff back in the '50s. I think it was called 'The Lark'. Worst evening of theater I ever endured.

Was she the one that went with curlers in her hair to the Oscar's in the 1960's?
Anyone remember this? OLD TIMERS?

She's walking alone in Hill House.

I only know her from "The Haunting. Which is the greatest horror movie of all time.
I loved the novel too and she captured Nell perfectly.
I read she was actually experiencing clinical depression during the filming, so maybe that is why it is so perfect.

Wonderful actress. I never saw her give a bad performance, but I thought she died years ago.

You really should put 100% the blame for the disaster that was [italic]The Lark[/italic] on Jean Anouilh's original French script and the annoyingly arch English adaptation by Lillian Hellman, R34. Harris' portrayal of Joan of Arc was, at worst, acceptably "workmanlike", which, under the circumstance, was miraculous. Harris did, in fact, win a Tony award for her performance.

One of the greats along with Geraldine Page and Sandy Dennis. What are we left with? Julia Roberts and that actress from Friends.

I just finished reading The Haunting of Hill House and was going to watch the movie. She was great in that.

She was amazing in "The Last of Mrs. Lincoln." She skillfully captured the life, in the U.S. and abroad, of Mary Lincoln in the 17 years after the assassination of Abe Lincoln.

Hill House has stood for 90 years and might stand for 90 more. Within, walls continue upright, bricks meet, floors are firm, and doors are sensibly shut. Silence lies steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House. And we who walk here... walk alone.

Does R3 expect a cookie for sharing both her ignorance and her inane reassurance to us that she must have seen a Harris performance but forgot it?
What makes people post such shit?

Isherwood said he took one look at Harris with her green fingernails and he said she WAS the Sally Bowles he remembered.

Luminous is an overused adjective that many actresses have not earned but it is the very definition of Julie Harris' performances throughout her long career.
And she was an actor's actor. I'm in the biz and I've never seen so many posts and tributes on Facebook about an actor's death as there are today about Julie Harris.

Ill never forget her mowing down Chip in the family station wagon. Truly a class act. Why, she wouldn't even call Donna Mills a cunt ( even though we all knew she wanted to).
