Actress Anne Francis has died from complications of pancreatic cancer. She was 80.
Francis, who was a sex siren in the 1950s also memorably starred in the science-fiction classic FORBIDDEN PLANET, but her star-turn as a private eye in television show HONEY WEST made her an icon.
Soap fans will remember Francis for her role as Arliss Cooper on DALLAS in 1981.
The stunning blonde died Sunday (Jan. 2) at a Santa Barbara nursing home, said Bill Guntle, a funeral director McDermott-Crockett & Associates Mortuary in Santa Barbara.
