    I just wanted to post that August 8th was the sad day that Barbara Bel Geddes passed away following a diagnosis of Lung cancer.

    Its my one regret that I never got to meet her during or post Dallas.

    Thankfully she has left a wonderful legacy behind both on TV and film, and I'm sure many more generations will appreciate her talents.

    SHE TOUCHED MY LIFE AND MADE A LASTING IMPRESSION ON ME.
    I WILL NEVER FORGET HER.

    I regret the loss of the old Forum and all the wonderful tributes made about her, I hope she knew how much she was loved.

    She certainly made the part of Miss Ellie her own.

    I will always love her. Rest In Peace, Barbara.

    You are the greatest and most loyal Barbara fan out there @Barbara Fan. She lived a great life and left all of us Dallas fans with fond memories. :)

    Dallas was never Dallas without Miss Ellie. When she left the show, there was no one left with the clout to tell JR off.

    Before Dallas, I first saw here in the film I Remember Mama and although I was a big fan of Irene Dunne, who was the star, Barbara really stood out in that film. She was a great talent and sorely missed.

    And she and Howard Keel were the embodiment of Santa and Mrs. Claus -- which the show never fully exploited (smells like the 89/90 season, while Clayton' sister is knocking off oil men)...

    14 years. Time flies. I've seen BBG in the five pennies and vertigo too. The last one I saw in film class. I knew instantly it was her as I recognized her voice. :)

    I recall @Tessie was the first to post it, all out of breath.

    She was indeed! The forum was so busy at that time and I really miss the fact I cant go back and read threads about it from 2005.

    :(
