Remembering Anne Jackson 1925 - 2016

I will always remember actress Anne Jackson, who died Tuesday at age 90, as Cloris Leachman's sister in the 1970 comedy, Lovers and Other Strangers. Her other film credits include The Journey (1959), Tall Story (1960), The Tiger Makes Out (1967), How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life (1968), The Secret Life of an American Wife (1968), Nasty Habits (1977), The Shining (1980), Funny About Love (1990) and Folks! (1992).

She also appeared on Broadway in many plays, including Summer and Smoke (1948), Oh, Men! Oh, Women! (1953), Middle of the Night (1956) for which she received a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Play, Rhinoceros (1961), Luv (1964), Lost in Yonkers (1992) and The Flowering Peach (1994).

Her television credits include the 1987 CBS sitcom, Everything's Relative (as Jason Alexander's mother), and the 1987 ABC miniseries, Out on a Limb, with Shirley MacLaine.

And she was married to actor Eli Wallach for 66 years (until his death in 2014).

Below I've selected some videos to celebrate Anne Jackson's life and career.

I was sincerely sorry to hear of her passing. I always thought of her as a stage actress who dabbled in film and TV since she was nowhere near as ubiquitous as her husband. But she was an open friendly presence who it was always a pleasure to see turn up.
