Cool, blonde American actress with prettily thin features and pale blue eyes.

Lived in Britain for some time in the seventies and was able to turn on an impeccable English accent. Nominated for an Academy Award in Days of Wine and Roses, she died from cancer of the liver at 55.

Lee Remick Quotes:

Kirsten Arnesen Clay: Thanks for the compliment, but I know how I look. This is the way I look when I'm sober. It's enough to make a person drink, wouldn't you say? You see, the world looks so dirty to me when I'm not drinking. Joe, remember Fisherman's Wharf? The water when you looked too close? That's the way the world looks to me when I'm not drinking.


Carol Garth Baldwin: When you go... take me with you. One day soon, you're gonna come to me and say, "Carol, I have to go." There won't be time to talk or to think of anything. And there'll be a car waitin', and then a plane, and you'll say "Carol, honey, I have to go..." Isn't that right?
Chuck Glover: [Softly] Yes, that is right.
Carol Garth Baldwin: [Pleading] Take me with you.


Carol Garth Baldwin: [to Chuck] I'm leaving here, with you or without you, but I want you to know something... I'd be a good wife for you. A DAMN good wife. I'm smarter than you in some ways and I know what's good about you and I know what's bad and I'm not afraid to tell you... I have two children who love you. They love you and I love you... and you're not easy to love, but you do need someone... and I love you. I love you, I love you.

Lee Remick Facts
Lee and her husband, Bill Colleran, were good friends of Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy and frequent visitors to the White House. Lee was also an avid spokesperson for the Democratic Party.

Lee's second husband, British producer Kip Gowans, worked with Lee on a number of TV movies including The Women's Room (1980) (TV), and Rearview Mirror (1984) (TV).

Her role in Anatomy of a Murder (1959) was intended for Lana Turner, who got fired when she insisted that her off-the-rack costumes, (suitable for the part of an Army wife), be designed by splashy Jean Louis. Later, Remick was announced to replace Marilyn Monroe in the unfinished Something's Got to Give (1962), but loyal co-star Dean Martin demanded that the studio reinstate the fired Monroe.
