Eleanor Parker, who was nominated for Academy Awards three times for her portrayals of strong-willed women and memorably played a scheming baroness in The Sound of Music, has died at 91.
Family friend Richard Gale said Parker died Monday morning due to complications from pneumonia. "She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her children at a medical facility near her home in Palm Springs," Gale added.
Parker was nominated for Oscars in 1950, 1951 and 1955, but then saw her career begin to wane in the early 1960s. Her last memorable role came in 1965's The Sound of Music, in which her character loses Christopher Plummer to Julie Andrews.
