DANA WYNTER COULD NEVER LIVE DOWN HER MOST FAMOUS ROLE
Elegant actress Dana Wynter has died at the age of 79. She starred in many Hollywood movies and appeared on countless TV shows, but will always be best remembered for her role in the science fiction classic “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” She played Becky, the love interest of Kevin McCarthy, in this 1956 thriller that is surely among the most frightening movies ever made. (It’s about small town residents being replaced by robotic lookalikes grown in pods.) “Body Snatchers” has been remade several times, but the original is still by far the best.
