An Actress to Remember

Bill Crider brings the sad news that 90-year-old Iowa-born performer Neva Patterson has died at her home in Los Angeles.

As The New York Times points out, the rather stern-countenanced Patterson was probably known best for her roles in the film An Affair to Remember (1957) and the play The Seven Year Itch (1952). But her lengthy list of credits in the Internet Movie Database includes guest appearances in TV crime dramas such as Coronet Blue, The Snoop Sisters, Ironside, The Rockford Files, Barnaby Jones, Cagney & Lacey, and In the Heat of the Night. Patterson also had a regular part in James Garner’s 1971-1972 western series, Nichols, and played “a collaborator with alien invaders” in the original, 1980s science-fiction TV mini-series V.
