Do you know who she is? Maybe you do, but maybe you don't. I will tell you.
Possibly her most famous screen role is as Baroness Elsa Schraeder, the second female lead in the 1965 Oscar-winning smash hit The Sound of Music.
I have seen that movie, probably fifty times and I know all the characters and actors, it never crossed my mind that that was the only movie I had ever seen her in.
Hubby flipped the channel to TCM and I read the desription for the movie.
Normally I wouldn't sit and watch a sword fighting movie with male characters slapping each other on the cheeks in a challenge for a duel. Just not really my thing. This movie had just the right amount of funny and female cunning, to keep me interested.
It didn't hurt, that Eleanor was in it and also starred Janet Leigh (Jamie Lee Curtis's mother)
It didn't register in my mind who Eleanor was, because she looked like this:
Big difference from The Sound of Music! Seriously though, isn't she gergeous?!
