Happy Birthday SuSu!

To Susan Tyrell,
I thought you were a very talented actress. You just great in the movie Cry baby. My prayers go to your friends and family. Lisa Weiner

As a "Square" extra in the movie "Cry Baby" back in 1989 I remember when I first saw her in costume I thought "Wow now SHE's an ORIGINAL." She carried that film, and that speaks volumes. How sad I didn't get to know her here in Austin. RIP.

My Father, Norman Alden, worked with Susan in the film I Never Promised You a Rose Garden. My father died Friday and while looking at his obituary in the Hollywood Reporter I saw that Susan had died recently also. She was such a great talent. I remember watching her in Rose Garden when I was a little girl. I was so moved by her performance. As an adult I enjoyed her in many other roles including Cry Baby. Every time I saw her face on the screen I knew I was going to be moved. Hollywood has...

An extraordinary talent. A unique visionary fueled with fierce and unstoppable energy. A true Legend in every sense of the word. Raise hell and save me a place at the bar Susu cause I'm gonna need a drink and a cigarette when I get there and I can't think of anyone cooler to do shots with... with Respect & love always, j

What a classic performance in fat city.
A great talent R.I.P.
