May 25, 1933 - January 18, 2014 Farewell Sarah Marshall. A Lilting lady, a magical Thespian, A Brilliant friend. There are not enough words to describe this Funny, Charismatic, and incomparable Pro. She died on January 18th, at age 80, way too soon, and after combatting for over a year and a half stomach cancer. She starred in countless T.V. shows, i.e. Twilight Zone's 'Little Girl Lost', and Star Trek "The Deadly Years", and innumerable movies and stage plays. Ms. Marshall was the only daughter of the British film and theater legendary stars Herbert Marshall and Edna Best. Most recently, and after a lifetime's friendship with Conrad Janis whom she co-starred with in Gore Vidal's A Visit to a Small Planet, and later they starred in The Velvet Shotgun in London, they recently reunited in Conrad's film Bad Blood¿The Hunger, which he starred in and directed and where she played a pivotal role. It was a special project as she and her husband Karl Held joined forces with Conrad, his wife Maria, and a bevy of beautiful up and coming stars, all of whom felt enriched by Sarah's unique and special gift of her talent and love. You will be missed, Dearheart. Photo: The Velvet Shot Gun in London, Directed by Frith Banbury
