Barbara Hale, R. I. P.

The Washington Post: Barbara Hale, a wavy-haired model and Hollywood leading lady of the 1940s and 1950s who warbled with Frank Sinatra in his first big film role and had a long television career as the devoted secretary Della Street to Raymond Burr’s tireless defense lawyer Perry Mason, died Jan. 26 at her home in Sherman Oaks, Calif. She was 94.

I loved Della. It's a shame she's gone but at least she lived until a ripe old age.

She met her future husband, Bill Williams, in WEST OF THE PECOS. Her son starred in THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO and appeared in a number of the revived Perry Mason films.

I always liked her.
