This Day in History: Sandra Dee Dies

It was 11 years ago today, on Feb. 20, 2005, that actress Sandra Dee died as a result of complications with kidney disease. She was 62.

Dee, born Alexandra Zuck, starred in approximately 22 films and also appeared in episodic television in the early 1970’s and early 1980’s. My favorite film of hers was Imitation of Life, which also starred Lana Turner, Juanita Moore, John Gavin and Susan Kohner.
