Evelyn Keyes: 1916-2008

Evelyn Keyes, best known for playing Suellen O'Hara in Gone With the Wind, passed away July 4 at the age of 91.

Other notable films include Here Comes Mr. Jordan, The Jolson Story and The Seven Year Itch, but her off-screen life often overshadowed her career. She was married to directors Charles Vidor, John Huston and bandleader Artie Shaw, and was living with producer Mike Todd during the making of Around the World in 80 Days, in which she had a cameo.

Her 1977 autobiography is titled Scarlett O'Hara's Younger Sister : My Lively Life in and Out of Hollywood.
