Rest in peace. I remember her most for "Trilogy of Terror".

I mostly associate her with "Five Easy Pieces" and "Trilogy of Terror".

Reports say it was a rare form of cancer, similar to pancreatic cancer. How sad.

That role, plus Telly Savalas's, were both billed as ''special appearances,'' which in 70s lingo is essentially ''two scenes and they're out.''

I'm going to skip the IMDB in order to pass on the inevitale Jack Nicholson warning comments. In this case, they knew each other, having appeared in EASY RIDER and FIVE EASY PIECES.

That was the first role that came to my mind as well.

"Go jump yourself!"

I bet a lot of guys my age had a crush on her.

RIP.
