Famous Actress Passes Away At Age 80

Francine York, an actress that counted more than 150 television and film roles on her resume, has passed away at the age of 80. As Variety reports, her close friend says that she lost her battle with cancer.

She is perhaps best known for the 1973 film “The Doll Squad,” which gained a slew of fans as a cult classic. The campy hit was a low-budget action film that centered on the premise of a team of bikini-wearing assassins being tasked by the CIA to foil a rogue agent that was aiming to take down the agency. In addition to that role, she turned in guest spots on TV hits such as “Batman,” “Bewitched,” “I Dream of Jeannie” and “My Favorite Martian.”

In recent times, she appeared on screen with Nicholas Cage in the film “Family Man,” and on the small screen as a guest on “Hot in Cleveland.” While best known for campy movies including “Curse of the Swamp People” and “The Centerfold Girls,” York felt she brought more to the table than just a pretty face.

“The studios would often hire me because I was attractive, then realized I could act, too!” she remarked in an interview with USA Today last year.
