Sally Forrest, a star of musicals and movies from the 1940s and '50s, died March 15 at the age of 86, losing a long-fought battle against cancer.

Publicist Judith Goffin announced the star’s death on Thursday.

Forrest danced her way across film and stage, a protégé of "Hollywood trailblazer" Ida Lupino, The Associated Press said. Forrest was known for her roles in “While the City Sleeps,” “Not Wanted,” “Never Fear,” and for her part in the Broadway production of “The Seven Year Itch.”

Despite being gone from the Hollywood scene for decades, Forrest still made an occasional impression on social media users, remembered for her performances and occasionally her physique:





Forrest was born Katherine Feeney in San Diego in 1928. "She worked as a model and taught ballet while still in high school,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. "Forrest was hired as choreographer and lead dancer for her first film, 'Till the Clouds Roll By' (1946), and went on to appear in several MGM musicals."

Hollywood columnists called Forrest the “Star of the Year” in 1949 after the actress-dancer appeared in “Not Wanted” and “Never Fear.”

Forrest also appeared on television, showing up on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” “The Red Skelton Hour” and in shows like “Suspense” and “Rawhide.”

She married Milo Frank, a writer and producer, in 1951; he died in 2004.
