RIP Ann Graves

BURBANK, CALIF– Anne Yarbrough Graves, for whom Hollywood appearances were only part of an incredibly full life, died quietly at a hospital “after a valiant but mercifully short battle with cancer.” She was 76.

MSTies will remember her performance (using the stage name Ann Graves) as Princess Laura in the movie in episode 411- THE MAGIC SWORD. She did another movie and four TV series appearances, before leaving acting for a fascinating life, detailed here. No really, you should read it.

Thanks to Paul for the heads up.

    Seriously. Just when we thought 2016 was behind us. :dazed:

    A beauty, a great talent, and wow, what a fascinating life. The Magic Sword was seriously one of the better movies ever done by MST3K, in my opinion. Certainly she was a bright spot; what a loss.

    Still, to everything there is a season. Prayers for peace to her family.

    “She had recurring parts on both Gunslinger and Bonanza and was killed by Indians a number of times before this sad and final departure.”

    I can only hope for so colorful an obituary.

    Sounds like she was a wonderful lady who lived life well.

    I, too, could shuffle off this mortal coil in peace if I had been able to have the title of “Miss Naugahyde.” But seriously, thanks Sampo, for urging us to read her obit. Sounds like she was a fascinating woman, one who didn’t have “quit” in her vocabulary.

    So I guess the Reaper will just keep rolling right along, as if we didn’t lose enough last year. :(

    Well, to be fair to the Grim Reaper, this was a 2016 death (though we found out about it after our annual “in memoriam” video, so she’s in the horrifying stack of corpses for next year).

    “Just came to freak you out, baby.”
