Rest in Peace, Lizabeth Scott.

Lizabeth Scott: 1922-2015

Lizabeth Scott: 1922-2015

It is with a heavy heart that I share that Lizabeth Scott passed on January 31, 2015, at the age of 92.

Born Emma Matzo in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the future star was raised in a home fairly brimming with culture, but she was frequently rebellious and outspoken: “As a child, my mother used to tell me to keep my emotions subdued, to be ‘a lady,’” she once said. “Instead of which I was a noisy, screaming little brat, definitely about everything.”

With her tawny hair, husky voice, and ice-blue eyes, Scott was one of film noir’s quintessential femmes and had numerous noirs to her credit, including The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, Too Late for Tears, Dead Reckoning and Pitfall.

She will be missed.
