    I was just about to post this.
    I'm the biggest fan of Joe Dante's Piranha and the quirky stop motion animation effects combined with the chemistry between Bradford Dillman and Heather Menzies is a major reason why. The comedic element is irresistible.
    She was immediate crush material when I first saw the film, so pretty in that girl next door sort of way.
    Brain cancer is a heinous way to go for anyone, but she was so young as well.
    Sad day.
    R.I.P.

    Sad. I should give Piranha a spin.

    Yes, she was just so likeable and charming in her roles - very girl-next-door. She was so spunky in PIRANHA. I know that she survived a previous battle with cancer some years ago.

    A lovely and talented actress and the widow of Robert Urich. Rest In Peace.
